Putney Mountain Hawk Watch

Front-TSP-Putney MountainSeptember 20, Southern Vermont Natural History Museum’s Michael Clough will lead a trip to Putney Mountain. We will meet at the Museum and carpool to the trail head to meet up with Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society hawk watchers to discuss raptors and migration during a brief hike to the lookout.  At the summit, we will learn more about the history of hawk watching on Putney Mountain. We will be near the peak of broad-winged hawk migration and (weather willing) could see thousands of birds.  At the very least, we should expect eye-level fly-bys from some of the Northeast’s most spectacular birds of prey. Peregrine falcons, golden eagles and the aerial combat of sharp-shinned hawks have all been sighted on previous trips. Pre-registration is required at 802-464-0048 or email [email protected]
