I volunteered to help count at the State Line Hawkwatch in Alpine on Tuesday morning. Thanks to a great bunch of hawk-eyed raptor watches, I think I recorded most of the migrating raptors that passed by.
As luck would have it, the big Broad-wing push came the afternoon before. We did have a nice variety of raptors, which I was too busy finding and counting to photograph.
I did take a few shots later -- of the lookout (above) and local Common Raven, Bald Eagle and Woodchuck (below).
The cafe is open for outdoor orders, and the Porto-Sans are there if you really, really have to go.
