I have also had 1 or 2 Robins all winter, flock size increasing every time
I see them. Today a large flock (150 est)of Cedar Waxwings in Manchester at
the Post Office apple trees. FIRST SPRING RETURNEE, my vote is for Turkey
Vulture. Maybe an unfair guess because of my weekend visit to the northern
coast of Mass. Saw (3) Vultures (MA & NH) they are on the way! But I need
some consolation, who would think VT would be viewing an Ivory Gull when I
decided to go south to coast in search of winter gulls! The irony of it
all, I hope the Ivory Gull rides out the storm and is still around this
coming weekend. Nancy Brown-Danby, VT
