147 Church Avenue, Ballston Spa, Saratoga, New York, US

Protocol: Stationary
Comments:     I sat in my backyard talking to my neighbor about this and that. As always, I noted bird sounds as we were talking. It was Blue Jays, House Finches, Blue Birds, Mourning Doves until all of a sudden, it was Red-shouldered Hawk, which got both of our attention. First one, then another broke the horizon and soared, calling loudly over both of our yards and Saint Mary's Cemetery and woods behind. They were very active for 15 minutes then sporadic until i needed to be elsewhere. Very cool, as I have not heard or seen them here.
