At todays Hawk Watch on Buck Mt. in Waltham, the hawks were few and far between, and mostly far away. We did get a nice up-close look at a couple of Broad-winged and Sharp-shinned Hawks, though. The best sighting of the day was a Cackling Goose in a string of Canada Goose looking like a half-scale replica of the birds around it.
