8/27 Stratford, Boothe Park - Despite the warm temps (82F) today, the NW winds beckoned me to watch for migrating hawks 3:00-4:30pm. Migrants included 3 Ospreys, 2 Northern Harriers, and 3 Bald Eagles (1 ad., 2 imm). Resident birds included 4 Black Vultures and a Peregrine Falcon.
The nearby Connors Lane Community Garden held a flock of 23 Bobolinks.
Finally, Linda & I witnessed about 40 Common Nighthawks over the house about 7:15-7:30pm.
