The Putney Mountain Hawkwatch – It’s History and Accomplishments

The speaker for the Putney Mountain Association Annual Meeting on Jan. 24th, 2016 was John Anderson, drawing upon his extensive hawk watching experience over the decades.  Each Fall John and approximately twenty other dedicated volunteers maintain a continuous presence on the Putney Mountain summit from September 1 to November 15.  For nearly thirty years they have kept records of the number and kinds of hawks, temperature, wind and weather, all of which they report to Hawk Migration of North America.  Putney Mountain has become the most important hawk watch site in Vermont and is significant for the entire Northeast.
