So the hummingbirds chasing the hawks would be classified in the newly
designated (I presume AOU sanctioned?) family "nothing else"??!! 

Sorry, couldn't resist....

9:00 this morn - Leadmine Brook swamp - Harwinton:

1 - Olive Sided Flycatcher
3 - Kestrel 
1 - Sharp s Hawk
nothing else!

The hawks were all moving through heading due South.

Strange sighting: All the 4 Hawks were followed by Hummingbirds 
diving on them as they all went South. One poor Kestrel had 4
hummers at once diving at it!
