And of course this exceptional finding was reported to VT eBird.
Saw my first Brown Creeper of the year in the South Hero marsh this afternoon. Otherwise it's still pretty quiet there. nice walk, though. A couple of RT Hawks overhead and a single Canada Goose in the marsh by the parking lot.

A Short-eared Owl was hunting northward
along the west shore area of Grand Isle
by moonlight last night from about 7:50 to 8:10.
