      Sorry for the late report, but 26 September was a great migration day at
      Hawk Hill, Marin Headlands. Along with an excellent overall raptor count, my
      count of Black Swifts for the day was 43, and a remarkable 26 Broad-winged
      Hawks passed the hawk watch. I've posted a few photos here:
