According to the "Weather Channel" website wind conditions predicted for Charlotte on Sat are south/southwest. Am I correct that these are less than ideal for the Hawk Watch? Will the group still go to Mt Philo, and if not is Dead Creek a possibility? Thanks. Pam

Next Saturday, Sept 13, Rutland County Audubon will make its annual trip to Mt.
Philo State Park to watch for migrating broad-winged hawks.
Meet at 9 a.m. in Brandon at the parking lot behind the Mobil station (next to
the Vermont Sandwich Shop) on Rte 7 to travel to Mt. Philo where we will drive
to the top ($3 entrance fee to the park).
Bring lunch. If the weather is not conducive to hawk migration, we will visit
other birding hotspots in the Champlain Valley.
If you have any questions regarding this trip, contact Roy Pilcher at
