We see them here in Wisconsin quite regularly too. What great pics. I do believe they are making a comeback.
in the post-DDT world.
They were rare indeed in New England when we moved to MA in the early 1990s. Now they're widespread and common in many places.
There are a bunch of them along the Connecticut River (NH/VT boundary). The river's not far from us (maybe a mile or so as the crow, or eagle, flies) but this is the first time we've had one hanging around our yard any thing like regularly (two days in a row).
Mrs. H noticed we haven't seen any of the other local raptors lately (we usually have a nice array of hawks of various kinds) -- perhaps they didn't want to deal with the big kahuna stealin' their prey!
all the best,
We have a bunch of mating pairs here in Greensboro, NC. They are all over NC which is a big change from 20 years ago.
"(maybe a mile or so as the crow, or eagle, flies)"
Or as the turkey flies. Turkeys are well-known to migrate as much as 3,000 miles before being shot by mhardy.
all the best,
Which begs the question: But would you eat one? (Obviously, not all by yourself.)
Sorry, had to ask!
