yes, they've made an amazing 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,
