We had 233 hawks on moderate West and Southwest winds and 10-30% cloud cover. 2 fly-over (heard only) DICKCISSEL, a YB Sapsucker and a couple of late(r) migrants (No. RW Swallow, Bk & Wh Warbler, RT Hummingbird). Lighthouse is an original Bird Watcher's Digest "Big Sit!" location. We were busy with the hawks but we managed a modest 52 species.
Unofficial results for yesterday (10/10/09) were a very impressive 888 hawks. The winds built/shifted to strong NW mid-morning and the hawks, began pouring through immediately. We continue to have a strong American Kestrel flight. Good news.
