A beautiful morning:
In the wetlands to the left of the "road" I spotted a Mink prowling about,
the first that I was able to observe with binocs. Also, at the first point at
which the road runs directly adjacent to the wetlands, I came upon a pair of
Tree Sparrows, one which was singing. Is it unusual to find these birds in
Vermont so late into April? I referred to the Peterson's breeding map and it
seems that they still have a long way to go. Is there a precedent of tree
sparrows actually breeding in Vermont?
