I will be birding in the northern VT are this weekend from Fri to Sun
while my wife is attending a Rug Hooking class at the Shelburne
Museum. I ill be trying to add some species to my VT list which is
currently at 175 species.
I was thinking of possibly trying to get up to the Northeast Kingdom,
perhaps at Moose Bog an/or Victory Bog with hopes of finding some of
the "good" birds there such as Gray Jay, Spruce Grouse, Back-backed
Woodpecker, and Red and White-winged Crossbills.
Is anyone reading VTBirds currently that resides in or has
familiarity with that area that can make any suggestions that would
be helpful in trying to find a couple of those species? I have the
"Birdwatchinging in Vermont" book by Ted Murin and Bryan Pfeiffer as
a reference and for directions, but if anyone has any current info
that they would be willing to share, it would be very much appreciated.
One question I have in particular - has it begun to get snowed in up
there yet? Am I likely to run into difficult driving conditions
getting to to those places?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
