Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 9

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 9. Thanks much to Winnie Burkett and Jana Whittle for keeping eyes to the sky on a busy day. Modest north winds shifted to south midday. Nice accipiter numbers. Highlight today was the numerous types of clouds at the same time, the sun dog and the gator in the pond. Bob
