It appears that it didn't freeze last night.
Becky and I went out around ten and covered the snapdragons anyhow, even though it didn't quite feel like it was going to be frosty.
It was sure chilly though. I took a blanket out to spend a little time in the quiet of the sitting porch and needed both.

Sure worth it though. I'm not going to count it on my farm count, but I am pretty sure I saw a Peregrine Falcon. It was clearly a falcon of some kind, very sharp, pointed wings and all. And it was large, kinda crow-sized.
However, I could not get a good look at the facial markings, so it will remain an almost, but not quite, sighting.
Amazing though what we see from this little farm in the middle of NY. At the same time there was a buteo up at Bald Eagle height, way at the edges of very high clouds. Even at the absolute outside range of my admittedly not very powerful binoculars, it was just a light-breasted, dark-winged speck. Probably just a Red-tailed, but I have never seen anything but an eagle that high. And it was definitely not an eagle.
