Finally, finally about forty Sandhills just passed. I had been looking for
them all afternoon. They were high and vocal. They looked as if they were
on a b-line to the Hiawassee Refuge in TN-flying NNW.
After Eran's eloquent post "Wings" I wonder if anyone has the heart to post!
I was beginning to think it was my lot to report on just Vultures. There
were about 15 Black Vultures waiting next to the street in North Canton a
few days ago. They were waiting for a 'possum to finish cooking on the side
of the street. (I moved the road kill to the edge of the woods-hoping that
none of the Vultures would be hit by a vehicle.)
Today there were five Black Vultures at Hickory Ridge and at least five at
The Turkey and a few Black Vultures are still roosting at North Canton. I
saw about 200 soaring yesterday in the late afternoon.
The Yellow-breasted Sapsucker was still on the Sugar Maple this morning.
This afternoon while I was waiting for the Sandhills, I watched two
Yellow-rumped Warblers playing chase around the Maple.
Back on watch for Sandhills...
