A great haul along the Ti Haul trail today!

Hello Vt Birders,

5:30 this morning, before our assigned duties and appointments for the day, three Madbirders (Pat Folsom & Scott Sainsbury & I) walked most of the Ti Haul trail to see who  might show up.   It was cool and cloudy, with a slight breeze, but the birds were steady and the final tally gratifying!

Nearly 3 hours, 63 species (and 16 warblers later), we chose to move on after a quick snack at Harrington’s.  And it appeared we weren’t the only ones getting something to eat on the fly.  As I stepped out of the car, I heard the dramatic call from a Merlin passing overhead.  He perched in a large willow tree situated between the covered bridge and mill (Shelburne Museum) and continued to announce his arrival.  Meanwhile, my friends came out of Harrington’s to see what was delaying me and by then the scope revealed more to the story.  A female flew in beside her mate, which had a Catbird clutched in his talon and pinned to the tree limb.  He fed her a few morsels before she took over and little tufts of gray feathers, nearly invisible, aimlessly floated through the air and were gone in the wind.  I couldn’t help but feel a little compassion for that Catbird, traveling all this way just to be eaten!
