I am savoring the rare experience of a Goshawk flap-flap gliding 40'
above my head a few minutes ago. I saw the enormous shadow first and looked
up to find the bird above me. What a large and powerful raptor this is!
Yesterday (3/23) saw the arrival of the first Robin and the first
Red-winged Blackbirds here in snow country. While I am only 14 miles N of
Montpelier, it is higher, snowier, and usually at least 5' colder than that
Winooski Valley town.
