Only 92 Raptors tallied at Audubon Greenwich today, which included only 28
Brong-Wings but did contain our first male Harrier of the season. With this
rain now fully behind us they predict light NW winds for tomorrow. Not to
jinx anything but everybody who knows hawks has the date September 17th
etched in their heads as the "magic day" for Broad-Wings. Now it could be a
complete bust, but if I were you I'd be at the hawk watch tomorrow.
