[IBLE] Hawk movement in Pocatello area Sat

In a half-hr from my deck in Chubbuck Saturday afternoon, I saw 2
sharp-shinned hawks, 1 Cooper’s Hawk, 1 red-tailed hawk, 1 northern
harrier, 1 turkey vulture and 9 Swainson’s hawks – all moving directly
north to south. Each lifted on thermals and the west winds deflecting off
the east bench, then glided south. Interesting to me because I felt no
north component to the wind. The only migrant on the ground was a red-naped

Haven’t seen in a hummingbird in the backyard in almost a week.
