There are numerous good birds being seen at the Turners Falls power canal in western Massachusetts. Turners Falls is only about 15 minutes south of the VT/MA border. This is easily within striking distance for southern VT birders. (Directions to this place can be found in the Western Massachusetts finding guide).
Hector Galbraith found 9 Cackling Geese there today. I went down and refound 8 of them. Also present: 1 female Barrow's Goldeneye, 1 Glaucous Gull, 2 Iceland Gull and Hector also had a Nelson's Gull (a Glaucous hybrid).
Thought VT birders might be interested. It's certainly worth the drive.
