RE: 1st black hawk
This seems early enough to consider that maybe this is the last Common Black Hawk of 2017, rather than the first one of 2018.

RE: 1st black hawk
^^^ What he said.

A decade or so ago, COBH arrived in the first week or so of March (frequently the earliest in the state) but in recent years that has advanced to the last week or so of Feb. There are numerous locations along Oak Cr. where a wintering bird might easily go unreported.
