We set out to tour western Rutland County in the hopes of finding a Snowy Owl today (no luck), but nevertheless found five species of raptors. These included:
2 adult Bald Eagles chasing a Red-tailed Hawk at Benson Landing (considerably more iced in than yesterday)
2 Northern Harriers, male and female, in Benson on East Road
12 Red-tailed Hawks (all in Benson and West Haven except for one in Rutland)
1 Rough-legged Hawk, dark morph, in West Haven
2 Peregrine Falcons, one on Ghost Hollow Road in West Haven, and one at its usual hangout in Rutland City on the church steeple
..all these and others submitted to eBird.
