Notes When we were at the last-but-one-stop Galeville Park we could see 3 NH and 4 SEO flying over Shawangunk Grasslands NWR (the 2 locations are contiguous) but they were too far to identify as to sex/age so we didn't enter them at the Galeville Park location but entered them at Shawangunk Grasslands NWR where they were infinitely closer and could be specified as to age and sex.
