Re: Swainson's Group 6

One time many years ago (25?) I was up in the San Gabriels with Ron Cyger and Ed Stonick and a bunch of other people from Pasadena and we had a flock of I think 53 Swainson's Hawks flying over the San Gabriels and headng north. In other words, instead of going around the mountains they were going straight up over them. I remember that it was March, and there was a lot of snow on the ground and I was marveling at all of the Violet green Swallows up there in the pines with snow and wondering what they were going to eat.

Y. Lee saw hawks moving heading north from Easton canyon area....??

This morning's Glendora hawks all moved W or WNW. None appeared to go north up the San Gabriel Canyon.

Perhaps Bear Divide might prove interesting.

I've been watching quite a bit from northern Altadena in the hope of seeing some of the hundreds of Swainson's hawks that Mike Peralez reported earlier this morning over Glendora.  I've seen only three!

Where did they go?

Perhaps they went over the mountains?  Or farther south along 210 in Pasadena, and beyond where I could see them?

Again just now repeat. Riding over the ridge. Maybe Midwick etc. will provide better view
