Today I witnessed what I believe to be a large hawk migration over my home. There were more than 200 birds! It lasted for half an hour or more. They were floating on the wind flying from west to east. I watched the chickens too- they were wary and went inside the coop for the most part, with some lingering within diving range of their pallet shelters to watch the sky. I tried to look carefully to see what kind of bird it was- they were all the same. My DH said he thought they were hawks. I originally thought they were eagles because the wingspan was so large. They looked black from below. They weren't bald eagles for sure. They weren't red-tailed hawks either. It was an amazing sight and I was just in awe of these huge silent birds. Some circled above me to check me out too, lol!
