A Good Day for Watching Hawks

Tuesday finally brought more than just a few hawks to the Putney Mountain Hawk Watch - variable winds, variable clouds and sun, cool temperatures, a light shower, as many as fourteen experienced hawk watchers - and lots of hawks. Final count for the day: 790.

Sharp-shinned Hawk (just after stooping on the plastic owl) - 79 for the day
Bald Eagle - 3rd year bird - 5 for the day
Broad-winged Hawk - 684 for the day
Hawk Watchers - 14 for the day, plus visitors
Next 2 days have a positive weather forecast. Hopefully the hawks will continue along the ridge. Good birding!

I checked the HawkWatch site stats before dropping by ... you obviously had the right winds and weather for an excellent day at Putney Mtn.
