Baltimore temperature hits triple digits for first time since 2012; heat to continue through rest of week

Watching for the hawks

Birders make their way to Cromwell Valley Park Saturday mornings in September, for the Hawk Watch, held during the fall migration every year.

Hot weather mid-week kept the migrating birds out of the air mid-week by Saturday the temperatures had cooled down and the birds were on the wing again.

Jim Meyers, a volunteer at Cromwell Valley, leads weekly bird walks and keeps the official count of hawks passing through.
