9/12/15, 1:45-5:30 PM -- Backyard, Westport

A surprisingly fantastic (comparative to expectations) migration went underway today. The full raptor list is as follows: 1 turkey vulture, 1 osprey, 6 sharp-shinned hawks, 4 cooper's hawks, 29 accipiter sp., many of which were flying extremely distantly, 1 BALD EAGLE (certainly no zone-tailed but a yard first), 1 BROAD-WINGED HAWK (also a yard first), 9 red-tailed hawks, and 7 buteo sp.. The accipiters were certainly not in short supply! I'm excited to see what will fly over in the coming week!
