Broad-Winged Hawks pass through NJ on September 16th 2012 in big numbers. The map below shows a mark for each location where 1000+ hawks were counted. It is often hard to predict exactly when the migration will peak but it was last year on the 17th the bulk of the birds moved through. If the colder weather brings NW winds the birds will gather for their migration south. More birds are expected in the coming weeks.
