10/12 - New Haven - Lighthouse Point Park Hawk Watch - 173 migrating
raptors counted including:  6 Black Vultures, 7 Turkey Vultures, 3 Osprey,
3 Bald Eagles, 2 Northern Harriers, 65 Sharp-shinned Hawks, 56 Cooper's
Hawks, 3 Red-shouldered Hawks, 5 Red-tailed Hawks, 5 American Kestrels, 4
Merlins, 6 PEREGRINE FALCONS, and several unidentified raptors of various
kinds.  Not a notable day for small migrants, although they were all over
the park itself.  First serious flights of Canada Geese were noted (236.)
Thanks to all the Observers (11 in all!)  It was a pleasure to welcome so
many guests, as well.
