I took the time to answer my own question about harriers observed in  
migration this year as compared to past years.  Since I go to the archives  to 
see posts to this list, rather than receiving individual messages as they are  
posted, my apologies in the event that this question has been answered  
already.
 
Lighthouse Point: Total number of harriers in '09 - 330,  '08 -  342,  '07 
- 658,  '06 - 617,  '05 - 414
Quaker Ridge : '09 - 169,  '08 - 182,  '07 - 305,  '06 -  266,  '05 - 114
Cape May:       '09 - 862,  '08 -  613,  '07 - 1299,  '06 - 1528,  '05 - 
1219
 
 The number of observation hours for the season at each location did  not 
appear to vary too significantly. Harrier numbers appear to be below  the 5 
year average this year.
