The highlight of my Birdathon yesterday (Thursday): 2 RED PHALAROPES at the
boat launch of Kent Pond near Killington. A local birder said there had
been 18 of them during the previous week, but he had been seeing only 2
that day from the launch. I watched them feeding for about an hour, what a
gorgeous and entertaining bird!! Perhaps one silver lining of all this rain
is that they'll stick around a little longer.
