Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 3

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 3. Moderate north winds and a clear sky. A great day all around. First decent Broad-winged flight, great accipiters and a surprising Swallow-tailed Kite. Needed extra eyes today and got it from David and Luann, Tad Finnell , Joe Kennedy and many more. Bob
