After Monday’s 1048 raptors counted at the Cape Henlopen hawk watch, the news spread over DE-BIRD (as the news of every day does) and through an article by Molly Murray in the News-Journal (featuring an Osprey photo by yours truly). Thursday, October 2nd, a sizable crowd assembled for what looked to be the next big flight day.
Though numbers didn’t nearly reach Monday’s heights, topping out at 229, it was great to have such a nice turnout of observers. And there is still good reason to keep coming–Saturday, October 4th yielded an astonishing 95 Peregrine Falcons out the day’s total of 404 raptors and pushed the seasonal grand total over the 5000 mark.
