Hi All,

As Nick says I don't think anyone is worried about there being no Harriers in Connecticut or perhaps even that worried about Harriers at all but merely observing that numbers appear to be down. They were definitely way down at Quaker Ridge this year (fewer Harriers than Bald Eagles!!!!) and looking at www.hawkcount.org Lighthouse had the same experience. Harrier numbers seem to be on the decline at hawkwatches in the east over the last fifteen years generally although signs don't seem to be overly worrying yet.
