If you do as Bryan suggests and cross to the New York side, take a moment to look at the heroic sculpture on the tower ... the one facing out to Vermont. It was a gift of France on the occasion of the celebration of the 3rd centennial celebration of the discovery of Lake Champlain... and the sculpture,  "LaFrance", is by Auguste Rodin. LaFrance seems to gaze with great longing (I think) at Vermont! Perhaps seeking a tufted drake?

Incidentally most histories say that it was in the vicinity of this spot that Champlain had a shoot out with  the Iroquois at the behest of the Algonquin guides who had traveled south with Champlain. For a good summary and some pictures...

  One of the drake Tufted Ducks was hanging out this morning among a flock of 260 or so Greater and Lesser Scaup just off Crown Point, NY. So if the scaup flock is too far from the Vermont side (at Chimney Point), I suggest folks drive drive across the bridge, park at the visitors center, and take a 5-minute walk overland toward the point. (This, of course, won't work for those of you looking to add the duck to your Vermont list.) 

  The other aforementioned duck species were lingering closer to the VT side, including 5 Redheads (3 drakes, 2 hens) and 2 Northern Pintails (1 drake, 1 hen). There was also a lone female Gadwall among the group. I noticed four Bald Eagles at the bridge, and had the pleasure of bumping into Walter Ellison and Nancy Martin, who had noticed six eagles.

  A few other notable birds during quick stops along the lake Monday included: American Kestrel at the corner of Tri-Town Road and Lake Street in Addison, a healthy complement of Rough-legged and Red-tailed Hawks across Addison, a drake Barrow's Goldeneye off Potash Bay in Addison, and a Peregrine Falcon on the gray lighthouse-looking structure in the lake off the foot of Lakeside Avenue (near Blodgett's Beach) in Burlington.

  Happy New Year.
