Random Images from a Hawk Watch

When the Broad-winged Hawk migration over Putney Mountain concludes, somewhere around the September 20-23, there is usually a lull until other species begin moving seriously around October 1. But there are always a few stalwart watches who make sure that those slow days are covered, and the few birds counted, and  just in case ....

But most of the action takes places other than in the skies overhead. Here are a few random images from Putney Mountain during the last few days ...

Good Birding - wherever you may be!

Good job, great pictures. I think that picture of the Hermit Thrush is spectacular. Great lighting, but still clearly visible.
