I stopped by the Keene ariport on way home from Keene, NH today. The rainy weather weather must have grounded a flight of American Kestrels, I saw 12 perch on one section of fence on the north end of the air field. I could see a few more perched on runway lights a few hundred meters from the parking lot. I drove to the south end of the runways and found more Kestels there, the count was 22. Nice to see a good number of this species , which has been (and still is) in serious decline in the past several years!
Another nice sighting was an American Golden Plover that was spooked from the grass by passing aircraft on the runway.
In Templeton, Ma. , I stopped by the Templeton Developement Center and saw a yellow kingbird sized bird perched on the wire. A Western Kingbird would be a great find in North Central Massachusetts, the problem was it was a Scarlet Tanager pretending to be a much rarer kingbird!
Here is the list from Swanzey, NH:
