Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 16

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 16. Modest east winds and Broad-wings until 1130 when strong north gusts arrived and gradually shifted to south. Although not counted, 3 Red-tailed Hawks and a first year White-tailed Hawk added to the buteo fun. Billy K was great during the Broad-wing chaos and David Smith did his usual reliable scanning. Bob
