Sept. 6 New Haven, Lighthouse Point hawk watch - 35 diurnal raptors (23 American Kestrels)
The big movement on light NW winds early was 2300 BOBOLINKS; also 4 DICKCISSELS, 2 RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, 5 PURPLE FINCHES plus 34 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, 16 Eastern Kingbirds and 460 Cedar Waxwings. Most of the hawks moved after winds turned stronger out of SW.
Helping pull those Bobolinks et al out of clear blue skies were Bill Banks, Sara Zagorski, Tina Green, Dana Campbell and Chris Reynolds.
