9/24 New Haven, Lighthouse Point hawk watch - 102 diurnal raptors on a day with an unexpected morning shower and wind moving all around the compass. Other migrants included:
2 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, 8 Chimney Swifts, 1400 Blue Jays, 3 RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, 380 Cedar Waxwings, 5 DICKCISSELS, 110 Bobolinks, 55 PURPLE FINCHES (very conservative, heard many that weren't seen); 150 American Goldfinches. Two Common Ravens also paid a visit.
Thanks for eyes on the skies from Bill Banks, Sara Zagorski, Frank Gallo, Dori Sosensky and others
