Hi all,
I would like to mention a few birding highlights seen this past week, plus some birds to add to this weekend Hawk Watch at Green Ridge. So, this Sunday 9/24/17 I checked Hatfield at dawn before heading up to Green Ridge. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Pectoral Sandpiper on the 1st Pond, a first for the year. Other highlights below:

Long-billed Dowitcher 4
Least Sandpiper 5
Greater Yellowlegs 2
Merlin 1
Northern Harrier 1
American Pipit 60
Savannah Sparrow 100+
Vesper Sparrow 1
Pine Siskin 6

Green Ridge 9/24/17

After seeing Six species of Woodpecker yesterday we added another Two today with a single Downy and c30 Lewis's Woodpeckers passing bye, I think it was 15 in the largest group. Nine Band-tailed Pigeon passed early into the count.
A Black Swift put in a brief appearance, only seen by Two observers as it was screened by Trees on West side. Small groups of Vaux's Swift were seen throughout the day numbering 20 or more, also, Varied Thrushes in small groups moved East to West through the morning. I believe it was around 2.00pm when the juvenile Broad-winged Hawk sailed over, unfortunately very high.
