Lighthouse Point Park, New Haven, 11/15/17, 6:15am-2pm. 60 Migrating Hawks. 15 Turkey Vulture, 1 Bald Eagle, 7 Northern Harrier, 18 Sharp-shinned Hawk, 4 Cooper’s Hawk, 8 Red-shouldered Hawk, 4 Red-tailed Hawk, and 3 Unknown Buteo.
From 7am-8am, up high, the sky filled with what I think were mostly Common Grackle in many long and undulating flocks that seemed to snake their way west down the coast. Flocks of Robins, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Cedar Waxwings also filled the early morning sky.
Thanks to Robin McAllister, Ed Haesche, Dan Barvir and Ken Merrifield for the box of Munchkins.
