Higher numbers continue

Good hawk flights continue here in Veracruz, with daily totals of at least 70,000 raptors for four consecutive days.

Broadwings and, to a lesser extent, Turkey Vultures dominate the flight this part of the season, while Swainson's Hawks are seen daily in low numbers.

We also had a good Wood Stork flight yesterday, with 3,110 migrants counted. After a long day of travel, these three were looking for a place to spend the night.
