Help the Fell House -- Dine at AB&G next Monday
Spotted Sandpipers from the Point, Dusk

The Fanning Report 082410

Rob sez:  Highlight during a quick trip around the CF this morning were a pair of BLACK VULTURES--my first August record for the CF. After not seeing any at CF until a few years ago--I now have records for 8 months (Jan--May and Aug--Oct)

A briefly seen Cooper's Hawk seemed a bit early...

and the tall snag near the Scout Platform (which has hosted birds such as RB Grosbeak, OS Fly, Peregrine and RS Hawk)--is no longer after the rain-storm...
