Hawks at a Distance: Identification of Migrant Raptors
With a foreword by Pete Dunne

My most memorable hawk-viewing experience was from my childhood, while picnicing on a hill behind my house in Newton, Massachusetts. It was 1975 during spring migration, and an immature Golden Eagle soared high overhead, gliding towards the north. Bald Eagles are a possibility in Eastern Massachusetts, but Golden Eagle was totally unexpected. One or two occasionally winter in New England, but at the time, Golden Eagle was not at all on my radar screen – and spotting one migrating north over metropolitan Boston is a once in a lifetime experience, and apparently a memorable one for a 10-yr-old.
