1792
Broad-winged Hawk

Counted a huge streaming flock over the deck as well as the numbers counted in several kettles simultaneously. Without a doubt the most BWHA I've ever had at Whitefish Point, or the UP for that matter.

Adult=1669|light=1730

1
Swainson's Hawk

Observed directly over the hawk deck in a small BWHA kettle, moving out over the lake. Somewhat larger than the BWHA, with much longer wings. Long pointed wings, with bulging secondaries, long squared off tail, pinched at the base. Plumage was dark colored, with little contrast between the underwing coverts and underwing flight feathers. Good comparison with adjacent BWHA, instantly recognized when first seen.

26
Rough-legged Hawk

Adult Male=3|Adult Female=5|Immature=8|dark=4|light=20

9
Belted Kingfisher

A somewhat notable and surprising visible migratory event. Multiple BEKIs observed flying west to east and counted as they flew past the Hawk Deck. Small groups of multiple birds were observed. No returning birds were counted and most did not. Part of a several day movement of this species that spiked observations; BEKI occurrence has since returned to a more typical and expected levels.
