Bald Eagles have become a little more "problematic"to determine if they are migrants or "locals". For example, today 2 immature s pasted the site apparently headed SW only to show up a bit later headed north, hence they were removed for the migrant list, but still a pleasure to observe.
Portions of the "powerline trial" had an impressive carpet of beech, birch and maple foliage, making for a near "red carpet" stroll to the watch site!

|A low passing aircraft.|
|28 of a total of 90 south bound Canada Geese that passed.|
|1 of 2 Common Loons that passed on a south bound mission|
|Heavy cloud cover over Pack Monadock, they had a similar flight to Watatic(for this day), but they had a late day Golden Eagle!|
Pack has had quite a season with over 18,500 migrant raptors for the autumn, including a Swainson's Hawk.

|More snow passing and it looked like like "Pack" was getting some winter action.|
|A portion of this heavy squall eventually gave Watatic a wintery blast.|
|Another squall about to obscure the Boston Skyline.|
