Hawk watch, Cadillac Mtn, Acadia NP, ME. Sept 2005. I joined the annual Hawk Watch atoop Cadillac while Fred went for a run along Eagle Lake in the Park. We didn't see a whole lot of hawks. Consensus (I didn't see any of them well enough to identify) was several sharp-shinned, two kestrels, two merlins, some osprey, a hummingbird (I did see that one--it flew right past us on the top of the mountain!), some vultures. While at the top, I also saw an eastern towhee and a black-capped chickadee.
