For a description of all three encounters--including hints on what to look for in differentiating female from young male Rufous--please visit our "This Week at Hilton Pond" photo essay for 22-31 October 2006 at http://www.hiltonpond.org/ThisWeek061022.html As always we include a tally of birds banded during the period, a list of recaptures, and miscellaneous nature notes--including one about a rather large White-tailed Deer that showed up this week at Hilton Pond.

In the early 1900s, the most acclaimed celebrity in Europe, and arguably the world, was a fashionable, frail, Brazilian-born aviator named Alberto Santos-Dumont. The first to fly an airplane in Europe, Santos also built and flew the first practical dirigibles, or powered balloons. At a time when most balloons were at the mercy of the wind and many still thought the airplane an impossibility, Santos's bold exploits sparked a sensation. He was the spiritual father of aviation, and at the same time, a flying P.T. Barnum, intrepidly demonstrating his incredible flying machines in Paris, London, New York, and St. Louis. NOVA brings to life the little-known story of one of the world's great aviation pioneers in "Wings of Madness."
