Sixteen species were observed by Rutland County
Audubon during this morning's monthly monitoring
walk. This compares to 16 species one year ago.
Fifteen wild turkeys were seen leaving a backyard
feeder area. Unable to negotiate the snow well,
we enjoyed watching them fly across a field to a
roost in some conifers.
Black-capped chickadees and blue jays made up a
large number of the individuals talled. Twenty
mourning doves were seen enjoying the sun in a
sheltered area. Also three common ravens, two
dark-eyed juncos and one American tree sparrow
were seen. No raptors today.
Our sightings were also reported to this
weekend's Great Backyard Bird Count.
