Mt. Agamenticus, York, York, Maine, US
Apr 3, 2017 9:40 AM - 1:10 PM
Protocol: Stationary
Comments: Hawk watch, clear skies, temp 44 to 50 degrees, wind light
breeze, after 11:45 wind picked up to 10 to 20 MPH. from the west. The
frustration of spring hawk watch is the hawks migrate a long ways away from
the mountain, at least for the last 3 years I have been up there.
