Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 4

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 4. Modest north winds that switched to west in the last hour. Two new countable birds for the season were White-tailed Hawk and Turkey Vultures. The accipiters keep coming and the 2nd day in a row of good Broad-winged Hawk. Great support today from Tad Finnell and Susan Heath and many visitors. Bob
