Followed the Hudson River from Schuylerville to Fort Edward today and then the FE Grasslands. Had 1 Cackling Goose on River Road and 4 Bufflehead. American Kestrel on Cary Road followed by Male Grey Ghost (Northern Harrier) on Plum Road. Then some beautifully marked European Starlings (despite their invasiveness) on Towpath Road in Kingsbury. Best of the day was a female adult Cooper's Hawk on New Swamp Road, chasing songbirds with the precision of a falcon! Amazing views over open grassland!
