3 Cooper’s Hawks
1 Red-shouldered Hawk
1 Broad-winged Hawk
1 Merlin
1 Peregrine
5 Swallow-tailed Kites



  1. This is Dan Reilly from National Weather Service. Were seeing returns emanating from Smith Point and crossing the Bay to near San Leon this evening (7 pm or so). Do you all have any eyes on what is going on? I’m thinking could be birds. Do they migrate that way?

    • Dan – we don’t track passerine movements at Smith Point but yes it is a major site for passerine migration in fall so the returns you are seeing are very likely birds.
