Cranberry Oct.27--overcast did not induce an RT flight, but many had good look at Goshawk,Peregrine and battling Cooper's

The eastern Red-taileds have elected to stay back until the overcast skies
get cleared out. Thusly today's Cranberry Marsh Raptor Watch, at the base of
Hall's Rd. in southwest Whitby,ON,CA, had to accept a very small number of
migrants--indeed only 8, BUT a perched juv. N.Goshawk which decided to glide
past us created a stir. Also, take in this scenario-- 3 resident Harriers
had enough of a Peregrine among them, each having a go at it, eventually
causing the latter to soar, bat-like, over us on a westward flight. THEN the
Harriers went into a local Cooper's Hawk territory; the CH took it out
rather vehemently on one of the Harriers in a bit of an aerial attack.

Non-raptors--5 Sparrow spp., Hermit Thrush, 15 Dunlin, Yellow-rumped
Warbler,Junco
