Migration observations March 8, 2011

Paso de Ovejas Veracruz. Wish you were here. I have been observing  raptor migrations for about a week now. No heavy movements so far...mainly TV's. Yesterday I spotted 120 high flying Mississippi kites. Today I had my first accipiter, a Cooper's hawk. Have seen several Ospreys.  As for migrating aquatics...... beautiful swirling clouds of Anhinga.

I have been going out early for general birding (I got 55 species in two hours the other day.
Here a a few pics of species that I have photographed recently.

Masked Tityra

I will be keeping you updated here as the migration continues.  Twitter  @mexicohawkwatch
Good birding All.
