    Details: Today was our highest day so far, with 495 raptors seen migrating from Obs. Sharp-shinned hawks were second only to Cooper's hawks.

  9. Number observed: 165

    Details: The most frequently seen bird today on Obs.

  10. Accipiter sp.

    Number observed: 13
  11. Number observed: 1

    Details: I originally believed this to be a White-tailed Hawk, but after further consultation with Jerry Liguori, and several other raptor biologists, I am convinced it is a Variable hawk. The rufous back would fit more with a Variable Hawk since the WTHA has rufous coverts. The dark trailing edge on the flight feathers are also a clue that it's not a White-tailed hawk since the WTHA has dark flight feathers similar to a Swainson's hawk.The rufous back is also indicative of a female.

    Details: Lots of Swainson's hawks pouring through all day. Yesterday Obs counted 129, but I didn't personally witness all of those since I wasn't on Obs.

    Details: 5 adults migrating south and one juvenile. We always watch Peregrines for as long as possible to ensure that it is indeed migrating to reduce error of counting the residents as migrants.
