The 7th annual hawkwatch on the James River, sponsored by Coastal VA Wildlife 
Observatory, enjoyed its best day ever today, March 23rd, with 173 birds. The 
next best daily total was 136 on March 23, 1998. Yesterday's total of 75 was 
also quite good for the site and the season total is now a bit ahead of the 
normal total for this stage, at just under 500 birds.

There were 9 species recorded for both today and yesterday and 10 species for 
the 2 days. The site has never registered 10 species in a day. Bill Williams 
was also on hand today.

Other arrivals were a Barn Swallow yesterday and a flock of 11 Greater 
Yellowlegs today.
