2016 Migration Notes
« on: March 09, 2016, 18:44 »
A report from one of the St Adolphe Hawkwatch volunteers on March 7th ...

I was there from 11:15 to 14:15. During that time the main action was Canada Geese with a few 1000's passing over, mostly before 14:00.

I drove by the St. Adolphe migration watch area on Mon. around noon.  There were 7 cars parked there.  Many people were there with all kinds of observing equipment and chairs.  They were all looking up into the sky.  Looked like it would have been quite enjoyable to be sitting there with them.  It was a gorgeous day also. 
Kind of reminded me of the long ago days when we were fledge watching the West Winnipeg nest. Only thing we did not have all the equipment these people had.
