Past Sightings

Eastern Massachusetts

Hawks are still moving in good numbers, although the largest Broad-winged Hawk flights have now past.   Wachusett Mountain in Princeton continues to be one of the best vantage points for observing hawk migration.  This a good time to see decent numbers of Sharp-shinned Hawks, as well as the vanguard of Red-shouldered and Red-tailed Hawk migration.  Any day with cool conditions the night before and accompanying north or northwest winds the following day is likely to produce a significant movement of hawks right now.  Be particularly watchful from hill or mountaintops with a clear view of the northern horizon.
