Friday 10/28 turned out to be a spectacular day at the hawk watch on Putney Mt.
6 Watchers trudged up through the snow and were treated to 333 birds, of which
133 were Turkey Vultures . It seemed to be TV moving day, with most birds rising up one after another and
gliding over our heads. Most passed in the space of 2 hours.
We also saw to 2 Bald Eagles, 3 Golden Eagles , over 90 Red-tails, Northern Harriers, Goshawks,Cooper's ,
Sharpies, Red Shoulders (9), 3 Osprey, Kestrels(5) and a Rough-legged.
Weather: light to mod NW wind, Blue skies, Temps.... well....cold but not freezing and snow on the ground.
Guess the birds knew a whomper of a storm was coming.
Bennington, where the snow is starting to whomp down.
