{BIRD NOTES} ~ September 14, 2015

Bird Notes


Saw a Bald Eagle cruising above the Harris Hill ski jump

West Brattleboro Birds
Early last week (I think Tuesday the 8th). We had a male Ring-necked Pheasant attempt to infiltrate our chicken coop and our free-range Guinea Fowl (Helmeted, I think, but it’s whatever species they sell.). It took off as soon as it saw me, and is not known to have returned.   On Wednesday evening, probably around 7:30, Meg and I went to the Chelsea to buy some AC as the storm was coming in. Shortly east of the Chelsea, we saw a large flock of Common Nighthawks, possibly 2 to 3 dozen. They seemed to be congregating for their trip south.

Nighthawks Over Westminster

Quite a change from last night with only 77 today bringing the season’s count total to 3341. Wind from the WNW may have pushed them off to the east. It was another fun year but time to move on to hawks & other migrants.
