Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Nov 15

Smith Point Hawkwatch report for Nov 15. Moderate northeast wind shifted to east midday. The last day, always a little sad but you know it is the right time to wrap it up. This is a wonderful site to hawkwatch and to enjoy the species richness of all the other flying creatures. Thanks to all who helped with the count, it was appreciated and needed. Thanks to all the guests for their enthusiasm and helping to make my days even more fun. Adios, Bob

    Enjoyed meeting you and watching the hawks. Hope we see you again. Gives me a thrill just to be down there, and your expertise and friendliness was great. You added greatly to our knowledge of these great birds.
