We were lost in an amazing place. On Camp Lion we found 4 little downy hawk feathers on the ground. There is a nest near the fallen feathers, but we are unsure if this is a hawk's nest or if there is another one near by. It is hard to tell. This area is by the Pine Barrens. These wooded areas offer ecological diversity at high altitudes with tall trees in dry pine barrens and wetlands near a great Mass Pond (Spring Pond). Maybe this is why there are many sightings of birds of prey here?
Next, entering Salem's public parcel (part of the proposed development), we found more interesting geological formations. Here we heard the sounds of an hawk, and tried to follow it. The hawk is faintly sounding in the middle of the playback, but is heard clearly near the end.
More from our discoveries of today's walk, to be continued... There is much to share!
