Had one calling Whip-poor-will in Brandon on the 11th, calling just north of the intersection of Long Swamp Road and Short Swamp Road. It called briefly at 8:50 PM.
I also tried for the Sedge Wren that had been in South Burlington earlier this year but with no luck. Had nesting Swamp Sparrows and Yellowthroats, and a pair of Harriers there.
Also went to the South Burlington location where Clay-colored Sparrows had nested in previous years but did not find any Clay-coloreds. Not sure if they returned this year or not. Also had many families of Field Sparrows, Song Sparrows, Towhees, Yellowthroats, etc. at this very birdy spot.
Needless to say mid-July isn't the best time to look for nesting passerines, but this was my only trip to northern VT this year so my first chance to try for them.
