Here's a reminder that my Better Birding lecture on Hawk Migration will
be Friday evening, September 7, at 6:30pm in Montpelier (and NOT the
usual first Monday of the month). This will be a presentation mostly on
hawks in flight (in time for migration, which gets cranked up in a week
or so). Here are details on the lecture series:
Also note that the mountains have been busy with migrating songbirds.
I've been spending clear nights on high summits, birding my way down the
mountain in the mornings. The usual array of warblers have included Cape
May and Bay-breasted over the past 10 days or so. Among singing birds at
dawn (making me wistful for spring) have been Blackpoll Warbler,
Black-throated Blue Warbler, and Black-and-white Warbler. A few sunset
and moonrise shots from this past Saturday-Sunday are on The Daily Wing
Finally, the latest edition of my monthly micro-newsletter, FIELD NOTES,
is now online at http://tinyurl.com/d55yvoa. Among the features in this
issue is an image of Sabine's Gull, which shows up fairly reliably on
lake Champlain in mid September.
