Birding Brattleboro and Vernon for a couple hours this morning turned up 35
species. The highlight was witnessing the drama a Peregrine Falcon created
by putting up about 60 Ring-billed Gulls from a field across from the Miller
farm in Vernon, zooming into the mix, shadowing a singled out gull's futile
evasive maneuvers, making the kill, and chowing down on its lunch.
