Sorry - thought I had included my location in the earlier message today!
I'll also relate a recent encounter I had while walking the Poultney River
on Saturday. I heard loud squawking and looked up to see a green heron
dive into the river, and then pop its head up, still squawking. A bird had
been chasing it and went up in the trees out of my sight. As I got closer,
the heron took off, and then a large accipiter (immature gos? female
cooper's?) flew off through the trees.
