The fall hawk migration is well under way.

Large number of hawks migrate south each fall, often reaching the Texas coast, which they follow south and into Mexico, avoiding an across-the-gulf journey.

Now is a good time to keep your eyes on the sky anywhere in Texas, but especially along the southern coast as raptors begin to funnel in that direction.

Corpus Christi maintains a hawk watch station. On September 19 they recorded the following:

Broad-winged Hawks : 41,106
Mississippi Kites : 204
Red-tailed Hawks : 4
Swainson's Hawks : 34
Red-shouldered Hawk : 1
Turkey Vultures : 2
Swallow-tailed Kites : 5
Sharp-shinned Hawks : 6
Cooper's Hawks : 31
Unidentified Accips : 4
American Kestrels : 33
Peregrine Falcons : 2
Osprey : 15
Northern Harriers : 8
Harris's Hawks : 2
White-tailed Hawk : 1
Unidentified Raptors : 5
