I have just joined and I am very excited to be able to "chat" with other bird
I just wanted to report some things that I have seen. First this summer I saw
two Sand Hill Cranes in Bristol Vermont!! My mother had spotted them and I
thought she was mistaken, but sure enough that is what they were. They
stayed in the area for at least a month. This summer I also spotted a Great
Egret in Cornwall, right by the Lemon Fair Bridge! That was a real treat to see
it on my way to work. I wanted to mention that over the last two years I
have a Red Bellied Woodpecker visiting my feeders. I live in Bridport. He is
just the neatest little thing, however he was just all alone until I happened to
spot another one yesterday 2/4, I didn't get a chance to see if it was a female
or not. I'm hoping it is a female. Keep you posted.
One last thing to mention, I work in Middlebury and since the beginning of Dec.
we have had a larg flock or "murder" of crows that have decided to roost
outside my place of work. There is at least 3oo of them! I have heard that
this is called a communal roost. If anyone has more info on this behavior I
would greatly appreciate the info.
I think that is all for the time being.
