Yesterday, there were 508 raptors seen over Pack Monadnock Raptor Migration Observatory in NH, where we and other avid hawk watchers were. 459 of the raptors seen were Broad-winged Hawks, the most abundant migrant this time of year. Also seen were 4 Bald Eagles, 21 Sharp-shinned Hawks and a few other raptor species. Lots more hawks are to come, so keep watching!
