11-12 was very slow but had 1 Goshawk; dramatic increase in birds about 1230 pm on mostly buteo - and mostly visible on distant hills at 60 power.  Somewhere in the 100 to 200 range.  Mostly red-tail.  1 definite Red shoulder.  2 Coopers and numerous sharpies.  2 Pigeon Hawk.

The views from this location north into the central CT valley are phenomenal and to the northeast one can see Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire!

2 Osprey at nearby Crystal Lake.

Eagle Record - Hawk Mountain crushed their eagle record on September 26 at 251; previous record for the entire season was 245.  Currently at 288.
