Mass Audubon

Operated in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Blue Hills Trailside Museum is the interpretive center for the state-owned Blue Hills Reservation and features a natural history museum and outdoor wildlife exhibits. The animals on display, including snowy owls and a river otter, have been rescued and would not survive in the wild.

NH Audubon

Since 1981, NH Audubon conservation biologists and a legion of dedicated volunteers have worked tirelessly to advance Peregrine Falcon population recovery in New Hampshire. NH Audubon first became involved as organized releases of captive-bred falcons were ending and monitoring of wild-breeding pairs began. From a single cliff-nesting pair that fledged two chicks in Franconia Notch in 1981, to 19 breeding territories that produced a record-high 35 young in 2010, NH Audubon observers have been there for 30 years!

Center for Conservation Biology

Since 2000, CCB biologists working with state and federal partners have moved more than 250 wild-reared falcons from the Coastal Plain to mountain hack sites. Young birds have been taken from bridges and other sites with a record of poor fledging success to be hacked. Hacking is a labor-intensive process where young raptors are fed in boxes until fledging age, released, then fed until the birds are capable of hunting on their own and disperse. This program has resulted in the establishment of several known breeding pairs in the Appalachians.

"It was an intensely interesting experience, this observation of crows returning to the overnight roost."

Charles W. Townsend, MD, 1918

"The flight lanes may radiate from the winter roost in all directions: crows use the same flight lanes and feeding area day after day."

E. E. Good, 1952

"The subject of winter crows and crow roosts should be one of prime importance..."

Herbert Coggins, 1903
