Bird Notes


Finches Are Coming

For those interested, the attachment holds a wealth of information on this winter’s finch forecast.

Two Bald Eagles (adult and juvenile) rode the thermals high and glided south.

Golden Eagles Over Putney Mt.

Putney Mountain Hawk Watch has been relatively quiet in terms of numbers, but exciting in terms of birds. A Golden Eagle passed over the watch site on Sunday and Monday, both days around 4pm. Today(9/23) there were two Golden Eagles, both sub adults, seen on either side of 1pm. Both were relatively low and provided good views. See photo at

Flickers Are Also Flying

The hawks are visible at lower elevations too.  I had a stunning view of an American Kestrel hovering over the high field on Abbott Road in West Brattleboro on Tuesday (9/23) while the light brought out the richness of its colors.  The light was also showing off the colors of about 18 Yellow-Shafted Flickers in the field at South Pond, Marlboro.
