That is a late date for the warbler----saw Bill today and he said you got a photo of it. If so can you send it to the Records of Vt. Birds Committee??

Subject: [VTBIRD] Rough-legged Hawks and a Yellow Warbler
Today I checked out my winter route looking for hawks and had first Rough-
legged Hawk of the season across the road from McQuen Slang in Bridport.
Large flock of Black Birds heading south, 400 to 500 of them on a back road
in Orwell. The sound was wonderful, wished I had a tape recorderor movie
camera. Then 157 American Crows flew down the same valley, quite a sight.
Also of interest was a beautiful female Yellow Warbler at Brilyea Access.
Anyone know what the late date for this warbler is?
Hawks seen today:
Red-tailed Hawk 9
Rough-legged Hawk 3
Northern Harrier 5
Buteo UFO 2
