Where to begin? I spotted a large flock of waxwings (200+?) swirling around
a tree next to the La Quinta suites on Williston Road in South Burlington
this afternoon. Bohemians outnumbered Cedars 4:1. Interestingly, waxwings have
not showed up at Technology Park yet this year. Nonetheless the flock that I
saw took off in that general direction.
Next I went to the Intervale. Lots of gulls, crows, and starlings as usual,
but also I spotted an adult Bald Eagle that landed in a tree close to the
compost piles. This is probably the same bird that Fred Bates reported awhile
ago, but it was the first time that I have seen it.
Tramping around the fields at the Intervale, I saw the usual cardinals,
chickadees, and titmice and so forth. A half dozen American Tree Sparrows showed
up, as well as my first Brown Creeper of the year. The Winooski River is open
and is attracting ducks, though I picked out only Mallards (10) and American
Black Ducks (2)today.
Finally, I went to Royal Drive to check on the South Burlington Snowy Owl,
which I had not seen for a few days. Sure enough the owl was in her (his?)
familiar perch on a roof top devouring a rodent.
I love March!
