I stopped by Bolton again this morning and did see the Varied Thrush where
it had been previously reported, but it only stuck around about 20 seconds
before a loud noise scared it away. This was at about 9am.
After two trips to look for the Montpelier/Berlin Hawk Owl, the most recent
being 15 minutes ago, I have yet to relocate it. But there are plenty of
places for it to hide around there that aren't visible from the road so I
will keep tabs on that location in case it returns,
Good birding and happy new year,
