You've done a great job here, especially considering the numbers of birds passing!
Just got back from watching migrating raptors, among others, in Cape May. I spent a few hours one day trying to capture them as the dipped and rose, shot by and turned sharply. It was exhilarating to watch and almost impossible to get down. These drawings are an inspiration, not that similar ones from you and others weren't in my mind as I tried to sketch.
