f.. Sharp-shinned Hawk – one in a birch tree, chased and chasing crows, a Pileated Woodpecker, and an Anna’s Hummingbird
g.. Cooper’s Hawk – one in East Meadow eying, and being closely watched by, the swallows
h.. Owl sp. – one emerged, banked, and disappeared back into the fog predawn. Probably Barn, but can’t rule out Short-eared
