The Cranberry Marsh Raptor Watch is underway. Northwest winds today brought
more observers than migrating raptors, BUT we were enthralled by superb
looks at an American Bittern on the marshlands and in the air, along with
sightings or hearing of each of Wilson's Snipe, Virginia Rail, Chimney
Swifts, Marsh Wren and "resident" MERLIN, PEREGRINE, 4 N.HARRIERS, 4
RED-TAILED HAWKS, 2 OSPREYS and a COOPER'S HAWK.
Migrating raptors were limited to 2 N.HARRIERS and a SHARP-SHINNED HAWK.
