Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 18

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Oct 18. Strong east winds that slowed in the last 2 hours. Maybe the birds took a football Sunday break. First Herring Gull was seen from the tower and a juvenile Bald Eagle visited late in the day. Marvin Masters and a guest with no name helped with the count. Bob
