Hey everyone - Vermont is one of the top 5 states reporting to E-bird for 2006 through the end of January!!
Today here in the southern realm: 1 Turkey Vulture, a flicker, and 2 Fox Sparrows.
Also a Red-bellied Woodpecker, several robins, grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds, Song and White-throated Sparrows, and a Red-breasted Nuthatch along with the usual gang. Pairs of C. Geese and Mallards on the pond.
Observed a pair of Mourning Doves copulating followed by wing-quivering (by the female - probably) and mutual preening of the neck areas.
