      The Florida Keys Hawk Watch is looking for observers for this fall's
      count. This would be a great way to work on your Monroe County
      list! Counters at this site have seen Fork-tailed Flycatcher,
      Cassin's Kingbird, Olive-sided Flycatcher, and Zone-tailed Hawk in
      the last few years. A few years back they set the single day world
      record for Peregrine Falcons (about 425 as I remember). The housing
      is extremely nice (2-story stilt house on the water, oceanside, with
      a pool!) and just a short walk from The Wreck & Galley Grill.
      Contact Casey Lott (not me) if you are interested.
