I snuck out before work for a little more than one hour this morning around
sunrise. I started in South Burlington on Spear Street. Took Irish Hill
Road which connected to Pond St, eventually ending at Shelburne Pond. Most
of the activity was noted from the road as it bisects the marsh at the south
end of the pond.

Virginia Rail - 3 heard (of which one was seen well for several brief
Sora - 3 heard
Tree Swallow - numerous over the pond
Brown Thrasher - 2 singing, my first of the year
Yellow Warbler - several singing at multiple locations, my first of the year
Ovenbird - 1 singing at the boat ramp, my first of the year
Savannah Sparrow - 1 singing along Pond St.
Swamp Sparrow - numerous singing in the marsh
