Ruth - go to hmbc.net sponsored by Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club for Capital Region reports. Go to the lower left of the screen above the EABL and click on "See the latest sightings" and you can view member reports.
Reports so far from Tomhannock have been of rather modest numbers of waterfowl and eagles...best bird was a Gr. Wh-fronted Goose at the north end over a week ago. This week's cold weather should improve viewing at Tomhannock.
You referred to Rt 9 (VT Rt. 9 west of Bennington). As soon as it crosses into NY, it changes to Rt. 7. It is Rt. 7 that crosses the causeway at the south end of Tomhannock Res.
I usually make a trip or two in the fall to Tomhannock and will probably do so in the next 1-2 weeks. Ir's active until freeze up.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Tomhannock Reservoir?
We have traditionally made a Nov foray for ducks over to Tomhannock - the
reservoir split by Rte 9 on the way to Troy, NY. Has anyone traveled that road
of late and noticed any rafts of geese, ducks, etc? Is there a listserv for
birds of the greater Albany area? So far we have come up with few reports of
migrating activity there.
