Steve Pike and I saw this bird along the East Beach between Sparrow Field and the end of Shuster Trail at exactly 9:45 AM. it was heading south and it was gone before we could get Lindsey and Alison on it. It was seen by Jean Iron et al. a couple minutes later at the west side of the tip, then by Garth Riley flying south over the Woodland Nature Trail at 10:00 AM. It was seen by several other parties at various points in the south end of the park. Overall a slim raptor that was mostly gray, medium length square tail that was dark (I did not see banding in tail), narrow wings; size and overall shape quite distinctive. Looks were too brief to determine if it was an adult or first summer bird.
