I was watching a flock of canada geese flying over the intervale during rush hour when up from near the Ethan Allen Homestead flew a peregrine falcon. As it neared the geese it thought better of it and veered right over my house about 100 feet up, circled above my feeder and moved on. As I parked I found a robin on the ground next to the car frozen with fear and looking straight up. It stayed there even as I walked within 5 feet of it.
My wife reported that the ruffed grouse from yesterday had been chasing cars on the street all day. Two of my neighbors had confrontations. They said the grouse would lower its head like a charging bull and run at cars or people.
Has anyone else seen this?
