Lighthouse Park had very similar hawk watch experiences today.  45 hawks on strong ENE winds and beautifully wild cloudy skies.  Cumulus moving fast at all altitudes.  3 visitors.
 
I had 39 thin, medium-sized shorebirds, east of the Park, heading SE towards the East Haven Beaches.  I can only conclude they were Lesser Yellowlegs.
 
As of now, Tuesday and Wednesday are looking good for migrants.
