Yes. Yesterday, the 21st Feb., mid morning, an immature TV landed on an
apple tree stub not 20 feet from the house and several bird feeders, then
was "challenged" by our overly courageous black cat which scaled to the
perch in a few seconds, dislodging the intruder in a successful defense of
his territory. The TV's takeoff more than enveloped the cat by its
wingspan. Live and learn?

I just observed at least 7 TV's back in their territory on Rt 7 in Shelburne
this afternoon. Seems a little early, I usually see them around the first
week of March. They roost in the big dead tree by the Senior Living Center
on Shelburne Rd. In the summer I've counted as many as 25 in that tree.
