10/6/07 - From Gina Nichol, Julian Hough, and Sunrise  Birding Raptor 
New Haven, Lighthouse Point -- 10 MERLINS, 2  PEREGRINE FALCONS
Also: 5 Osprey, 4 Northern Harriers, 50  Sharp-shinned Hawks, 5 Cooper's 
Hawk, 1 Broad-winged Hawk, 40 American  Kestrel
I post my sightings online as well at 
_http://www.sunrisebirding.com/sightings.htm_ (http://www.sunrisebirding.com/sightings.htm) .  
Driving to Lighthouse this morning and seeing the weather, I wondered if we  
should have postponed the Raptor Identification Workshop because of the fog. 
I'm  glad we didn't!  We had great looks at several falcons and good 
comparative  looks at Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawk.  Buteos were low but the rest  
made up for it.  You never know!
