This is the Vermont bird report for Friday, September 19, 2003.

A Wilson's Storm Petrel was observed flying south past the west shore of
Grand Isle on Sept. 20.  A second sighting the following day of presumably
the same bird was reported off Charlotte Town Beach heading NNW.

Another group of birders had the pleasure of seeing a Pomarine Jaeger
Saturday morning, Sept. 20th.  The light-phase adult flew to within 200-300
yards of shore, affording great views of such details as thetwisted central
tail feathers.  It flew slowly and close to the wateruntil well past us,
then accelerated strongly, rose ~15 feet executed acouple of acrobatic
twists and settled on the surface. Also present were twelve White-winged
Scoters (in a single group) and a late-season Black Tern.

  2 Red-necked Phalaropes were moving south past Charlotte Town Beach
Monday, Sept 22 before they lost themselves in the haze. Also an impressive
number of Monarch butterflies were moving south over open water.

On Sept 21 on the west shore of Grand Isle: 12 Common Loons, 1 Snow Goose,
400 Canada Geese, and of smaller stature - 1 Ruby-throated Hummingbird. On
24th: 1 Red-Breasted Merganser, 1 Peregrine Falcon, 1 Coopers Hawk, 1
Osprey, 1 imm. Northern Harrier as well as other species such as Cedar
Waxwing, Carolina Wren, Warbling Vireo and others.

On Mt. Philo the same day: 51 broad-winged hawks were seen along with 4
sharp-shinned hawks, 1 red-shouldered hawk, 1 northern harrier, and 18
turkey vultures. 1 almost mature bald eagle with no particular flight plan
was seen as well as 5 red-tailed hawks.

At Dead Creek Brilyea access:  6 lesser yellowlegs, 2 least sandpipers, 1
Greater yellowlegs, 1 white-rumped sandpiper, 2 stilt sandpipers, 1
short-billed dowitcher, 6 killdeer, 6 semi-palmated plovers, 5 pectoral
sandpiper, 1 great egret, and 11 great blue herons. A peregrine falcon
raised the shorebirds and a northern harrier was seen hunting.

On Monday, Sept 22nd on the Moose Bog trail in Ferdinand - male SPRUCE
GROUSE, perched in a tree right beside the trail for birders.

On Sunday morning Sept. 21 on Stratton Mountain Bicknells Thrushes were
heard softly calling and singing throughout the early hours of the morning.
Bicknells are known to become vocal from mid-Sept. until departure in first
week of October. Also observed were Blackpoll warbler, Red-breasted
Nuthatch, Myrtle Warbler, Swainsons Thrush, Hermit Thrush, Ruby-crowned
Kinglet, Veery, Black-throated Blue warbler, Northern Raven, Northern
Flicker, and American Robins.  Perhaps most impressive of all were the
flocks of migrating Blue Jays descending upon the forest of the Lye-Brook
Wilderness Area.

In the Upper Valley at the Union dam on Sept. 23rd noteworthy birds
included, 1 American Bittern, 2 Eastern Phoebe, 43 Cedar waxwings, 8
Blue-headed Vireos, 1 Red-eyed vireo, 2 Golden-crowned Kinglets, 2
