So that's where they went! I was at the Cromwell Valley Park Hawk Watch in Baltimore County all day yesterday waiting for a flight of Broad-wings that never really materialized. On Tuesday, the Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch in Greenwich, CT reported on hawkcount.org over 3500 Broad-wings at their site. If the winds are right, the CVP Hawk Watch usually gets them the next day. The NE winds yesterday must have pushed them west to Carroll County. I'm glad someone got to see them!
