Last evening on Brigham Hill in Essex we saw a PALM WARBLER and heard a PINE WARBLER. Also heard my first HERMIT THRUSH of the year. BARRED OWL seen there on Saturday evening. I was less excited to encounter my first MOSQUITOES of the year as well ;).

Subject: [VTBIRD] new arrivals
New spring arrivals here on the Hill in Huntington include White
Throated Sparrow, Flicker and Tree Swallow. Our resident Grouse has
been drumming steadily for about a week now. I got a great close up
look at a Pileated WP that has been hanging around the neighborhood,
about 15 feet away eating ants from the bottom of a dead spruce tree.
Pheobes are nest building under my shop after a year’s hiatus. Purple
Finches are singing loudly all around the house.
In other Fauna, I counted at least 36 wood frogs in our small new pond,
amazing how many various critters have found it after only about 9
months. Other visitors have included a GB Heron and a Mink.
