VERMONT BREEDING BIRD ATLAS POSTING

For those not on VTBIRD.    Now to find a hummingbird nest!

Some really great confirmations of breeding for some species that I 
hear but seldom see.  What a thirill.   Note comments below.  Really 
hit paydirt.


Location:     Merck Forest, Rupert  Block: W.  Rupert6
Observation date:     6/12/06   Monday
Notes:      VBBA survey, Rogers Rd. E. Rupert 65 and partly sunny.  First no
rain day in 34 out of 38!  Defoliation bad; friendly flies BAD!  No 
blackflies.
Number of species:     48

Turkey Vulture     1
Red-tailed Hawk     1
Black-billed Cuckoo     1
Ruby-throated Hummingbird     2
Belted Kingfisher     1

Least Flycatcher     X
Eastern Phoebe     2
Great Crested Flycatcher     X
Eastern Kingbird     1

Blue-headed Vireo     1    Carrying food for yg.  First heard bird 
singing in area of some hemlock (thanks for hint, Mary.)  Saw 
movement in tree - and then bird - F cowbird!  Soon saw vireo 
frantically chasing cowbird.

White-breasted Nuthatch     11   Yes 11!  Two family groups of 
begging young - 3 with adults and 4 with adults.  One of the ONLY 
advantages of the excessive defoliation.

Brown Creeper     2 Pair carrying sm. moths to nest about 40' up in a 
8" dead maple.  Much of the bark was gone.  Birds were flying 
into/under a piece of bark hanging 3-4" off trunk.  WOW.  Again in a 
very heavily defoliated area.  So it was easy to watch the adults 
hunting and returning to nest.

Winter Wren     3  That's 2 babies and one adult which, 
interestingly, were in area where singing was heard.  I heard tiny 
begging call of baby.  So cute with about a 1/4" tail sticking up.

front door of house about 8' up.

Chestnut-sided Warbler     X   Building a nest about 6" from ground 
in a clump of ferns - right next to Winter Wrens.

Dark-eyed Junco     2   One of pair seen had a very black and white 
streaked breast, but gray head, throat, back, etc.   Any ideas about 
plumage variation here?  Behavior didn't indicate a young.

Indigo Bunting     X
Red-winged Blackbird     X
Common Grackle     X
