VERMONT BREEDING BIRD ATLAS POSTING
While birding is slow and weather is good for looking
at field notes, I have a question:
Do any of you have recent documentation (breeding status)
of the following species on National Forest land in Vermont?
I'm skeptical about the current status of a few of those species
that USFS indicates as present on the forest, and I would like
to confirm a few species missing from the GMNF list that I
expect are present (Killdeer, Cooper's Hawk, Willow Flycatcher).
Has anyone observed any of these species on GMNF within safe dates?
If so, please indicate the status (PO/PR/CO).
Thanks for any leads, and happy atlas-strategizing to you,
