Saturday was one of those bea-u-ti-ful New England Fall days,
and after hearing about the hundreds of hawks sighted over the last week,
we decided to head back up to Putney Mountain for the hawk watch.
So - hawk watch take 2 - bust...
As soon as we arrived at the top of the mountain, we were treated to the sight of a hawk gliding the thermals.
I didn't grab my camera because -
1) I was enjoying just watching and
2) I had no way of knowing that would be the only hawk we'd see all day.
So - what to do when there are no hawks to be seen?
Well - there's always watching the other hawk watchers....
and of course, enjoying the scenery,
... and reading the count of all the birds I didn't see over the past week...
- and then there's the little maple stand in Putney where we consoled ourselves with a
maple creemee - (Vermont's very delicious version of soft serve)
If you've never had one, I'd suggest you get into your car
- right now -
and drive to Vermont. Yep, they're that good!
So if you happened to be keeping score -
Putney Mountain Hawk Watcher: 4,011
Me: 1 (plus a maple creemee)
Yeah, I'll call it a draw (smile)
