storm, as by January 5th, when the postponed Middlebury CBC took place
there were several reports from January 3rd to 5th in southern Bridport
(as per Sue's report of today) with a minimum of four different birds
and as many as 7-8 (we'd have to put all the reporters together in a
room to figure out what possible and impossible overlaps there were in
There was at least one, maybe two, and possibly three a bit farther
south in Shoreham as well by that point.

Town line road, however, was the southern most road that I drove (my search encompassed most of the areas snowys had previously been frequenting this winter- town line road north, gage road, Rt. 17 between Rt. 22a and the Champlain bridge, and jersey street north/Goodrich corner rd. to the button Bay Area).
