Lighthouse Point Park, New Haven, 11/17/17, 6:30am-3:00pm. 40 Migrating Hawks. 1 Turkey Vulture, 1 Osprey!!!, 1 Bald Eagle, 14 Northern Harrier!!!, 11 Sharp-shinned Hawk, 5 Cooper’s Hawk, 1 Red-Shouldered Hawk, 1 Red-tailed Hawk, 3 Merlin, and 2 Peregrine Falcon.
Thanks to Steve Mayo, Sol Satin, Paul Roberts, and Ed Haesche for help looking for hawks in a less than ideal clear blue sky. With the exception of one Red-shouldered Hawk and one Osprey up high overhead, all other hawks were seen flying lower, usually just over the tops of the nearby trees.
