The Face of America: Hawk Ahoy! What sight on high causes these faces to light up? The answer, friends, is a bird – a soaring, taloned denizen of the sky. Quick-eyed members of this bird-watching group identify it as a red-tailed hawk or to be scientific, Bateo borealis. This expedition is led by Allen Morgan of the Massachusetts Audubon Society; the scene is the Great Meadows of the Concord River. Since 1832, continuous records have been kept on the birdlife in these meadows, woods, swamps and uplands. Among the earliest field notes are those of Henry David Thoreau, the great naturalist writer; Walden Pond itself is only three miles from this spot. Today bird watching is a nationwide hobby. Millions of amateur ornithologists tramp the countryside, binoculars and notebooks at the ready. Their greatest thrill is the sighting of an unusual species, but even robins, jays and swallows are colorful items in a watcher’s daily list. There’s no danger of running out of material; 1400 different species fly America’s skies. Estimated total of birds; 7,000,000,000.
