Swainson's Hawks Arrive in Borrego Springs

Hal Cohen
 

This evening over 100 Swainson's Hawks arrived around 4:30pm. They are probably roosting in Eucalyptus Trees in the back of the date farm. Light wind is predicted until 11am. If so, the hawks will most likely take off between 8 and 9am. Best viewing from the evening mound 1.8 miles north of Palm Canyon Drive on Borrego Valley Rd. or the junction of Big Horn and DiGiorgio Rd. about 1 mile north of Palm Canyon Drive on DiGiorgio Rd. Be careful parking in soft sand on the side of the road. 
Best.
