Wondering About Weather with Kitty and Hawk

 Kitty's friend, Hawk, lives in Manteo, North Carolina. Manteo is close to Cape Hatteras and a little further inland. Hawk cannot live beside the beach because there are no trees there and he needs to build his nest in a very tall tree. He is a very strong flyer in good weather so visiting Kitty is no problem most of the time, but he must be careful flying when it is windy or rainy. A strong wind can also move the branches holding Hawk's nest - that makes sleeping in his rocking nest pretty exciting! From Hawk's birthday weather list Kitty has kept it seems that he has been lucky, it has not been very windy at Manteo on most of those days. The numbers table and the picture, or graph, made from them are as shown here.
