I spent a pleasant afternoon at the Eagle Point WMA about 5 miles north of Newport. Not much doing at this time of year, but I did encounter 20 Hooded Mergansers, a Great Blue Heron, and a border patrol officer.
Eagle Point WMA is a new acquisition by VT F&W and the US F&W Service. Much of what I saw was grassland and an extensive marsh where the St. Johns River flows into Lake Memphramagog. The grassland area is managed for Savannah Sparrows and Bobolinks. There is woodland there, too, but it's on the Canadian side of the border and I did not cross the border today. I think that the whole area will be worth exploring further come spring. You can read more about the Eagle Point WMA on the VT F&W website or just Google Eagle Point WMA VT.
