Ruth and Don
That Cape May seen Dec. 14, reported to the very early! Records of Vermont Birds (RVB) was actually not in Vermont but in Essex, N.Y. But one of this species was reported on Dec. 20th 1992 from West Dummerston by Whit Nichols.
Fred has agreed to write up 'his' bird for the record when he has a final date. It is remarkable that it has lasted almost through the winter!
