    A male BULLOCKıS ORIOLE was reported from Tyler Place Resort on Shipyard
Road in Swanton. The sighting was originally submitted last week by an out
of state birder vacationing at the resort and anecdotally confirmed by an
unknown second person. The first sighting on July 9th was of bird(s) in the
evergreens adjacent to ³Lakeview Cottage.² On the 11th, a male perched in
³plain view² ³  in a tree in the field on the right just before the road
heads up a steep hill ² about 1/5th of a mile west of the junction of
Shipyard Road with Route 7. Efforts to relocate the bird have been
unsuccessful so far.
    A BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER was reported perched in a spruce tree in
Tunbridge on the 21st. No further details were submitted.
    Shorebird migration is well underway at Dead Creek where the water
levels behind the dike at Brilyea Access have been drawn down. Brilyea
Access is the first left heading west from the Goose Viewing Area along
Route 17 west of Addison. Drive back along the creek for about a mile to the
first parking area on the right. This is just before the road turns left to
follow over the top of the dam. Walk out along the gated track on the west
side of the impoundment. The track passes through broadleaf woodland where
it has been possible in the past to hear or see Black-billed Cuckoo.
Eventually you will emerge into a field. The road soon passes close to the
flats on the left. Check along the shoreline wherever there are exposed
flats; this is the best place at the moment to find the shorebirds.
    On Saturday the 20th, the following were present: 1 SEMIPALMATED PLOVER,
74 KILLDEER, 2 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, 20 LESSER YELLOWLEGS, 2 SOLITARY
SANDPIPERS, 3 SPOTTED SANDPIPERS, 11 SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, 290 LEAST
SANDPIPERS, and 2 PECTORAL SANDPIPERS.  A GADWALL, 3 OSPREY and several
GREAT BLUE HERONS were also present in the area.  Earlier in the week on the
19th, 1 STILT SANDPIPER and a COMMON SNIPE were also seen. On the 16th, the
list totaled 11 species including 1 SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, 79 KILLDEER, 28
LESSER YELLOWLEGS, 7 SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, 16 SPOTTED SANDPIPERS, 11
SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, 290 LEAST SANDPIPERS, 1 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER, 2
PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, 1 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER and 2 COMMON SNIPE.
    A trip to Island Pond on the 8th produced SPRUCE GROUSE with chicks, 2
RUSTY BLACKBIRDS at the flooded spruces on South America Pond Road, and a
³colony² of nesting PALM WARBLERS consisting of at least 5 singing males in
the yellow bogs along Stone Bridge Road, first left immediately after the
second railroad crossing about 10 miles east of Island Pond. This is the
road that parallels the power line cut. Follow this road about 4 miles to a
fork. Take the left fork until you get to a ³T² intersection. About 150
yards before this intersection there is a grassy area on the left as you
head south. The grass gives way to scrubby spruce where the PALM WARBLERS
were heard calling.
    The SANDHILL CRANE that roosts on an island in the Connecticut River,
visible from Route 5 between Barnet and McIndoe Falls, continues to be seen,
mostly on the New Hampshire side along Plains Road in Monroe. This is the
birdıs third summer here!
    At Knapp Airport in Barre, 7 UPLAND SANDPIPERS were tallied last week.
One can get a good view from the corner of the cemetery adjacent to the Blue
Cross office.
    Birds in Grand Isle last week included a male RED-HEADED WOODPECKER
along Moccasin Avenue, 2 CASPIAN TERNS and 1 CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.
    A GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER was seen at Tyler Place Resort on the 18th.
    Highlights of a census of West Rutland Marsh on the 18th included 1
AMERICAN BITTERN, 3 GREEN HERONS, 3 NORTHERN HARRIERS, a family group of 4
AMERICAN KESTRELS, 3 WILLOW and 1 ALDER FLYCATCHER, 8 MARSH WRENS, and 1
FIELD SPARROW.
    At Plymsbury WMA in Shrewsbury, the following were highlights of a
census on the 13th: 3 BROAD-WINGED HAWKS 3, 1 TURKEY, 7 WINTER WRENS, 6
GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS AND 1 RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, 1 INDIGO BUNTING, 4
BLUE-HEADED VIREOS, 2
HERMIT THRUSH and 1 WOOD THRUSH. WARBLER species included: 3 NASHVILLES, 1
NORTHERN PARULA, 5 CHESTNUT-SIDEDS, 7
MAGNOLIAS, 11 BLACK-THROATED BLUES, 3 YELLOW-RUMPEDS, 8 BLACK-THROATED
GREENS, 1 BLACKBURNIAN, 1 BLACK-AND-WHITES, 9 OVENBIRDS, 1 NORTHERN
WATERTHRUSH, 2 MOURNINGS, 10 COMMON YELLOWTHROATS, and 1 CANADA.
    Other MOURNING WARBLER reports this week included 3 (2 immatures) at
Merck Forest in Rupert and an immature at Oak Creek Trail at Dorset Park in
South Burlington on the 19th.
    A juvenile BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO was in Bennington on the 12th. An
immature PEREGRINE FALCON was being harassed by BARN SWALLOWS in Middlesex
on the 11th. A GREAT EGRET continues to be seen at the marsh on Kennedy
Drive in South Burlington. And two GREEN HERONS were photographed in a back
yard in Westminster.
