Anyone looking to soak up Bald Eagles with the sunshine this week might
travel to the mouth of Otter Creek (Porter Bay and Kellog/Fields Bay) in
Ferrisburgh (page 60-61 in Birdwatching in Vermont). Eagles are gathered
there in good numbers.
Ted Murin and I counted 25 eagles on Thursday, about a dozen each at the
mouth of Otter Creek and the Champlain Bridge to NY at Chimney Point. I'd
point out that the ice at the bridge has receded south, making the eagles
there (sitting on the ice) tougher to enjoy. A Vermont Bird Tours trip to
the mouth of Otter Creek on Sunday tallied at least 8 eagles there (along
with some other nice birds).
By the way, the ducks have cleared out from the Brilyea access to Dead
Creek in Addision. (Nice while it lasted.)
Not that I'll be as current as this list, but I'll offer regular updates on
the spring migration at my web site's "News" page at:
www.vermontbirdtours.com/news.html. (It's sort of like a one-way blog.)
