Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Sept 14

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Sept 14. Nice to be back and a fun day overall. Healthy east winds got robust as the day progressed. Good Mississippi Kite and Broad-winged Hawk movement and the total count was over 1000 raptor. 1 Selasphorus hummer and several Baltimore Orioles. Some good eyed visitors helped the count.
