Getting off topic.... I was wondering about the bird activity in the White Mountains . Sounds like you were on the Wildcat Ridge at night. Did you notice much passerine movement? The Bigsit list for Cherri Pond in Jefferson had a hermit thrush and three warbler species. Tom and Field has been a place for gray jays, black backed woodpecker and Boreal chickadee on the CBC.
I will be in the Pemi this coming weekend between Nancy Pond and Mt Carrigan. Hoping to hear some activity through the brush. Will listen for the snow geese.

> Not from CT but I heard a distant flock of Snow Geese flying south to the east of Wildcat Mountain's D summit in New Hampshire yesterday at dawn. Couldn't find them visually (heard several calling) because they were directly between me and the rising sun. Still a cool experience, the only sound I could hear while on Wildcat D summit was the wind roaring over the Presidential range in the distance (hurricane force plus) and Snow Geese calls. Mt Washington's and Mt Adams' summits are snow/frost covered already and the trails I hiked up and over Wildcat, Mt Tom, and Mt Field were all iced in places. Seems like I just put my crampons away a couple of weeks ago...
