|Gyrfalcon, East Hadley Rd, Hadley, MA, Jan 31, 2013 (my only sighting of this elusive bird)|
After the details were worked out the word was put out to the birding public. It may not be a perfect plan but it is a measured plan that will hopefully balance all competing interests. Those that found the bird, developed the viewing plan and managed the information deserve a hand. I tried for the bird on a few evenings as well as a morning but have had no luck yet. This evening at the secret viewing location at least 35 birders gathered to attempt to get a look at the bird. Always nice to see a large group of like minded individuals freezing their asses off trying to get a glimpse of a bird!
