Four were here today at Kerrs Ridge.
Three Tree swallows arrived here in Great Pond, Maine yesterday morning. They immediately investigated a previously used nest box. The resident pair of Red shouldered hawks arrived 4/9/2017 and are in active courtship. Two male Kestrels are hunting in the nearby blueberry fields. We scoped a Merlin within two miles of the same vicinity, a previously active location. We have also scoped a male Harrier three times in the past week, coursing a fields nearby, again a territory usually inhabited. We are located roughly 60 miles west of St Stephens, off route 9.
Two years ago I joined you at Greenlaw for a day of hawkwatching. I am always interested in what is going on across the border Jill glover
Lucky you to have resident Red-shoulders. They are hard to find in NB.
I'll echo Todd, Jill!
I was fortunate enough to find their nest site a few years ago. Later in the spring when behavior is stabilized I generally walk in for observation.
