A Good Day at Mt. Pete, 10/28/23

Based on the weather forecast, I had very low expectations going into today’s hawkwatch at Mount Peter. I was expecting it to be uncomfortably warm with a non-existent flight. But, there was a cool breeze all day which kept it very comfortable on the viewing platform and there were enough migrating raptors to keep it interesting. The highlight for me, however, was not raptor related. I had (4) skeins of BRANT fly over, with a total of approximately 450 birds. I always hope that I’m up at Mt. Pete when Brant come through, and today I was lucky. As always, I’ve included my full report at the bottom of this post.

  1. Great shots, Matt! Wonderful airplane formation! Solid, powerful-looking turkey vulture! Murmurations fascinate me and I’ve long-intended to know more about them.

      1. Matt,
        You’re an inspiration, and a Teacher! So very glad you are Birding, and Blogging about what you are seeing.
