Interesting, I was in Ferrisburg last week and heading down towards Middlebury on Rte 7 I spotted a GBH in a brook/wetland area on my left. I must say I did a bit of a double take, slowed way down to see if my eyes were deceiving me.
I have spent a part of the morning while doing barn chores listening to and watching six or seven Bluebirds frolicking around the yard. The Bluebirds overwinter here at the farm and spend nights in the bluebird houses. Also heard the Red-bellied woodpecker across the brook. Interesting that they don't seem to come to the feeder or suet during the warm spells. Guess they prefer what they find in the woods.
A Blue Heron was seen on the interstate median in Williston on Jan 12 205.
