I just saw the "Cornwall" Whooping Crane about 1/2 hour ago. I don't recall seeing the location specified in previous postings, so for those that are interested in attempting to see this Florida/Wisconsin wonder, head west on Vt Route #125 from Middlebury. Go down the hill after passing through the college campus and go 4 miles to West Street. Turn left and head South on West Street for about 1/2 mile. Stop and scan the fields on the right. It was feeding in the fields. It's big; it's white; and it's not a Great Egret! A Bald Eagle was also sitting in a tree nearby.
This is very near the spot where a Northern Hawk Owl spent some time in Nov/Dec 1996.
