Hi Henry,
There were none found in VT during the Breeding Bird Atlas, see
http://val.vtecostudies.org/projects/vermont-breeding-bird-atlas/breeding-bird-species/
You can see there are some very old records in Vermont eBird:
http://ebird.org/ebird/vt/map/yelrai?neg=true&env.minX=-76.23533602109376&env.minY=42.6204360190194&env.maxX=-68.48448152890626&env.maxY=45.23874819310714&zh=true&gp=true&ev=Z&mr=1-12&bmo=1&emo=12&yr=all

e Vermont Bird Records Committee has this information (
http://vtecostudies.org/wildlife/wildlife-watching/vbrc/annotated-bird-list/):

The first accepted record of this species was recorded on 18 July 1887,
collected by George H. Ross in Mount Holly. In 1913, another specimen was
collected by Richard Marble in Windsor. From there the reports jump forward
to a heard only bird at South Bay in Newport on 3 June 1975 and documented
by Frank Oatman and Jon Wood, and two years later on 10 September 1977
George O’Shea documented the fourth and last record of this species.

​Hope that helps.
Kent​
