I spotted 1 Bohemian Waxwing in a tree with about 80 other waxwings just
past the Common on Putney Rd. in Bratt. I've been checking flocks of
waxwings since I spotted 2 Bohemianin a flock of ~ 60 on Nov. 19, 07, but
have come up empty until yesterday. As far as I know there have been no
other postings of Bohemians in Windham County(????). Also on Putney Rd.
were 2 white-throated sparrows and a mockingbird. At the Retreat Meadows a
N. Shrike was sitting on a tree top on an island behind the water treatment
plant. Other birds at the Meadows included a red-tailed hawk, 7 c.
mergansers, and 4 hoodies. Below Vernon Dam off of Stebbins Rd- 40-45 c.
goldeneye and a kingfisher.
2 ravens along interstate 91 in Guilford, VT., ~30 horned larks on Caldwell Rd
just south of Vernon, and a barred owl perched on a low tree branch along
Rte. 142 in Vernon.
The pine grosbeaks have been around Bratt. all week, but the flocks of
redpolls have been noticeably absent since Wednesday.
