.....Thanks for replying. I was very excited to see the eagle at my in-laws backyard. Yes my avatar is a picture of the back of my DSLR camera..When I get home this evening I’ll try to upload one from my laptop for everyone to see.Thank you for everyone replying.Wecome to the site Tom! To post a picture, click the "Upload File" button, then browse to find the file on your computer. For best results, you should re-size the picture before uploading, full resolution digital photos don't work very well here. Generally speaking, it's best to re-size them so they are no more than ~1000 pixels wide.
Congrats Tom, I take it your picture is your avatar. Although not a rare sighting, they are not common. The Cape May Hawk Watch recorded 13 in 2017, the top count was 38 in 1996. It is very late for migration, which occurs in Oct/Nov. The one you saw may have found a home in NJ. I do not know of anyone that is keeping sighting records as it is not endangered, but you could fill out a report at this link;
or contact Kathy Clark of the Endangered and Nongame Species Program at Tuckahoe WMA.
This link is from HawkCount for NJ Audubon's Cape May Hawk Watch totals, the watch begins 9/1 and ends 11/30 each year at Cape May Point SP.
There are a number of watches in the state, the link shows the list. Each keeps a separate count.
