Today's flight of birds along the West Skyline Hawk Count was pretty diverse, topped with several newly-arrived species. The morning flight started off with over 1,200 Blue Jays, nine species of beautiful warblers (several were first-of-the-year for the count), a dapper male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and more.
