.....and I managed to pass Jim on his way out/my way in....thanks AGAIN to
Larry for finding such a special bird. Larry, your photo got me motivated
to get away from my computer, into the car, take a risk on (not) dipping.
What a beautiful bird! After about twenty minutes of searching, Donny
Coleman arrived. Together, we moved a little south from the tree Larry
described in his second post and followed the chipnotes of some Chickadees.
Donny noticed movement in the scrubby trees along the eastern edge of the
road and caught a hint of wingbars. If not for his keen eyes, I may have
gone home without a Vermont lifer...

Thanks to Larry for finding this bird and for letting the rest of us know
about it. I arrived there around 1:20 p.m.
and a few minutes later Kyle Rosenblad showed up. We searched together for
about 20 minutes and then saw
the White-eyed Vireo fly directly across the road from the Tommy Thompson
Community Garden sign. We were
then able to see it at eye level with the sun at our backs. We had very good
looks at it while it went from one branch to another. We were very lucky and
it was also a life bird for Kyle!!! We saw it again about 25 minutes later
and then I was able to see it one last time before I left at around 2:40
Thanks again Larry,
