Paul, a few neighbors and I watched a kettle of 40+ Broad-wings fly low over our house 11:40AM. An adult Bald Eagle and a few Sharp-Shins joined. 

Over the years i have conducted a few formal counts along the River but never hit pat dirt. Of course Hawk Ridge is Minnesota’s place to see high numbers. But Veracruz Mexico is where eastern US birds funnel. Take a lifetime opportunity to see, really see, a fabulous migration. I long to go back for 5th time. On the list!
