Putney Mountain Hawk Watch

Starting in late August through October, volunteer hawk-watchers count migrating hawks on Putney Mountain. Check out the HMANA site to follow Putney Mtn hawk migration.

 Sharp-shinned hawks greatly out number their bigger relatives. So far, we've had 192 sharpies and 14 coops come through. These two, put on a nice sparring match.
