So you got 'your' bird to hit VT soil, aye!! We were there from 12-2:00
today (among others) and scoped the far river side AND the cove areas to the
right and did not pick up the Euro. Darn. Did have a flicker and 3
bluebirds among the usual. Full report is separate.
>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

>For those of you trying to see the bird when it is on the NH side of the
