8/31 New Haven, Lighthouse Point - After faltering a bit in the morning, the wind picked up and stayed NW all day, producing a nice Aug. count of 88 raptors (not counting local RTs and TVs). We had 7 species including 67 Ospreys and 8 Bald Eagles. Non-raptor highlights were 4 sps of shorebirds including one WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER, one C. NIGHTHAWK, one DICKCISSEL, 550 BOBOLINKS, 5 sps of swallows including 330 Barn Swallows, 180 Cedar Waxwings, 120 Chimney Swifts and 46 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.
Thanks to Bill Banks and Don Morgan.
