Hawk Flight on Wednesday, maybe

The weather prediction has changed again (surprise!) and the forecast for Wednesday, March 26, now calls for the wind to shift from W to WSW by about 1:00 in the afternoon. If that happens, with the forecast for partly cloudy skies and temperatures up in the high 40s, there could be a significant passage of Turkey Vultures, Red-shouldered and Red-tailed Hawks, and others in the afternoon. If you're going to be out anyway, pay attention to the wind direction, and think about looking for hawks if the wind shifts toward the southwest. Aside from the hawk tower at Magee, another good viewing site is the sledding hill at Maumee Bay State Park, farther west and closer to the lake.
