“Well,” McGee answers, taking a sip of coffee, “I guess I’ll have to beat that!”

We have a pair that stay on the hill behind our house. They are beautiful birds.
I wonder if the decline in the number of hawks is because more are wintering here instead of migrating. It seems to me, that I see more hawks around South Eastern Connecticut in the winter, than I ever recall in years past. I have not seen as many kestrels or ospreys during the warmer months. I do see more eagles on the major rivers in eastern Connecticut. I work outside and I have more oportunity to see these birds than the average person. I also have a few bird feeders and the hawks are hunting the feeder birds more in the colder months than ever before. This is just an observation on my part, I have no scientific data to back up my claims. If anyone has noticed this I would like to hear your opinion. I love to watch the birds of prey and am very concerned over their loss of habitat.
