Location: Overlook at Caesar's Head State Park

Time At Location: 9:00-10:45

Although it was an acclaimed hawk watch spot, the hawks seemed to be in very low count. I was able to get a glimpse of two Cooper's Hawks off in the distance and one Bald Eagle though. For the short amount of time I was able to sit, I'd say 15 was a decent count, given that the area was fairly busy, which could have easily scared some birds out of viewing.
