Swainson's Hawks above the Franklin Trail this afternoon

I saw at least 11, and possibly more, Swainson's Hawks above the Franklin Trail in Carpinteria this afternoon. I'm unclear on the actual total because some of the birds were pretty distant, while others were in a large group I only was able to observe briefly as it moved in and out of clouds. Poor photos in the eBird list below.
