At the observatory on Mount Pleasant in beautiful weather wth light winds from the northeast. 3 imm. Bald Eagle 3 red-tail 2 kestrel 1 Turkey Vulture 1 Broad-winged Hawk farther west on Mount Pleasant and around corner on Turkey HIll and toward Game Farm. (Incidentally, the new fence at Game Farm is an attempt to keep groundhog, fox and coyote from digging into the pens and away form the pheasants.) 2 more imm. Bald Eagle 25+ Turkey Vulture 1 red-tail 1 probable Peregrine Falcon Hawk Mountain peak times Broad-winged Hawk 14-17 September Bald Eagle late August through mid-September Peregrine Falcon mid-October Five Bald Eagle in a short time and not at a feeding feast. I remember Tom Cade and the original hacking back of Bald Eagles at Montezuma followed by the great effort of the DEC and Peter Nye. I went up to Mount Pleasant for an hour+ yesterday and saw one buteo at great distance. That is my usual sort of luck at Mount PLeasant Cheers, John Confer -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
