Broad-winged hawk flight picked a bit yesterday, Wednesday (15 Sept) at the 
Chestnut Hill (Litchfield, CT) hawk watch but still a lot lower numbers then the 
weather conditions would have indicated with strong NW winds. We counted just 
100 broad-winged (BW) hawks. The BW's went over very high and fast. The only 
kettle of BW's was one group of 17. We did have two bald eagles, one right after 
the other.
Weather conditions  do not look good for a major flight today (Thursday, Sept 
16), with winds from the the S. Anticipate better conditions on Friday (17 Sept) 
after the front goes through with NW winds.
