Mid-October on Putney Mountain

Yesterday, the cloud ceiling was 1400 feet. The Putney ridge is 1600 feet. Not much in the way of hawks (total = 1). Today it was a glorious fall day and a half dozen regulars were there to view the mid-month flight ...

... such as this Red-tailed Hawk over the West River Valley ...

... and this Cooper's Hawk, which was definitely migrating, but also hunting (note the angle of the head).

The day also included a visit by a reporter for the Associated Press and her photographer. With the time they spent interviewing us and watching us watch hawks, perhaps a relatively major story might be forthcoming on our quirky group of people. At the least, we gave these two pleasant people a nice day out-of-doors during October.

Good Birding!
