Caesar's Head Hawk Watch 9/7/01

10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Hooray! We got BIRD(s)!
Our first bird of the season, a Cooper's, came by Wednesday. Yesterday's
total added up to 1, a  Broad-winged. With 5 pairs of eyes, trained,
strained and bloodshot, in 6 hrs. today, we tallied 4 migrant raptors.

Broad-winged            2
N. Harrier                   1
Turkey Vulture           1

Counters today included Hilda Reece, Reece Mitchell, Tim Lee,  an unnamed
young man from Brevard and myself.

Yesterday, Reece and I saw an unusual flight of 12 geese in a nice "V"
heading South.  Reece felt pretty sure they were Snow Geese. You just never
know what's going to show up.
