Interesting, Paul, my wife and I took a walk in the neighborhood during the 
 lunch hour and saw an imm. Bald Eagle and Sharp-shinned Hawk flying 
together but  none of the others you mentioned.  If the birds you saw  were headed 
southwest from Colebrook, they could have conceivably come over  Goshen.

After  birding at Colebrook Reservoir - Wayne and i went to beaver pond  
The bird life there was very slow, cept for 9 Wooduck, 1  Kingfisher and 
Painted Turtles.
However - we looked up, and saw  one high Broadwing Hawk. Then another, 
then we 
over 12 all  spiraling up high then heading due Southwest! 
In with them was one Im Bald  Eagle, one Merlin, and one Sharpie!

I believe we saw an early movement  of south bound hawks! Not too surprising
when September is only 2 days  away...
