Hi, I've been reading everyone's sighting reports for quite awhile now, so
I thought I would finally write myself :)
I was down at the Meadows late this afternoon and saw a male common
loon! I watched as he consumed a few good-sized fish - he had quite a time
finishing his meal. I've also been watching a nesting pair of Canadian
geese. They were the only geese around and were keeping a close watch on
their nesting area.
On Tuesday at the Meadows, I saw a lone cormorant, a belted kingfisher and
two pair of common mergansers. I also saw an otter today and Tuesday - cute!
Also, on Tuesday, I had a towhee scratching away under my feeder here in W.
Brattleboro. As I type, there are the usual house sparrows,
red-wings, and 3 chipping sparrows, along with one song sparrow in the
yard having dinner (fox sparrows were here last week). Last night, I
startled two deer enjoying the feeder "spillage" - guess they have to eat, too!
