The promising weather conditions at the Franklin Mt. Hawkwatch came through over the past two days and provided very good flights of Golden Eagles. Fifteen passed the lookout on Sunday and a season high of 31 were counted today. This continues the excellent late season movement of these birds, with double-digit tallies on 7 of the last 11 dates. The season total now stands at 168.
There may be more to come. Wednesday's forecast is for good WNW winds, and both Friday and Sunday forecast for NW winds, although the weekend is still too far away to have confidence.
