Ok, skies didn't clear until 1 pm so there wasn't a heck of a morning flight (tomorrow). 


But what a day!  1 imm Northern Goshawk low past the watchers, around 930 am (photo) and another around 1 pm.  2 SANDHILL CRANES (photo) heading west high over the oaks.  One imm GOLDEN EAGLE seen by Frank Gallow far to the NE.  Three Com Merganser (rare at Lighthouse), 7 Tree Swallow, one possible Cackling Goose among the Canadas, 40 or so Brant, incluidiing 4 circling a few feet above the watch (?!), 4-6 Com Raven; other birds reported on HawkCount.  


232 diurnal raptors, including 35 Northern Harriers (!), many of them adult males.  Still a couple more late afternoon minutes to report.  


...An exciting day.
