This morning I attempted to sneak up to and digiscope the Euro
green-wing on the NH side of the Connecticut River. Unfortunately the
teal flock saw me before I could see them thru the thick cover. The
flock, including the Euro, took off and immediately flew across the
river to land in the cove of Herrick's Cove, where I relocated them 30
minutes later. When I left about 10am the Euro was still feeding with
its Yank companions on an exposed mudflat in Herrick's Cove. I believe
that this bird may be the first record for Vermont.
For those of you trying to see the bird when it is on the NH side of the
river, there is a lot of dead ground across there (formed by little
inlets and bays). So the bird could be there but out of sight. You may
need to wait a while for it to appear.
