The link below will take you to a poem written by Robert Bensen inspired by a visit to the hawkwatch in the Fall of 2018. It beautifully captures the feeling of that moment when the eagles arrive.
The October day in 2018 I went up to the Franklin Mountain Hawkwatch not much was happening, but it turned out to be the record day–most of the action after I left. Of the dozen GEs I saw, though, one was especially memorable, as was the day, as the poem will attest.Robert Bensen
