[CT Birds] Head to a hawk watch tomorrow!

Don is spot-on.   'No need to fret about "waiting for the second day of a passing front."  It ain't September; this isn't Wachusett.  At Lighthouse, at peak season, when the "big fan turns on", the hawk flight can be almost instantaneous.  A wind shift at midnight or even later, is plenty of time.  And the higher the wind speed, the closer the hawks.  If the winds stay strong, be sure to bring your cameras.  Even if you sleep in and miss all the finches, and other early morning passerines, it should be good all day.

Looks like Bill Banks has grabbed the brass ring at  the Lighthouse Point 
carousel this year, because it's his day to count  tomorrow and currently the 
conditions look great - for the third Tuesday  this  year. Northwest winds, 
12-21 mph are predicted along with a lot of  sunshine (and hopefully, some 
clouds). A great chance to see lots of hawks and  have fun helping to spot 
them. Come on  down!
