Highlights of a 1.2-mile walk through an abandoned beaver wetland and
nearby hardwood forest off Happy Valley Road in Middlebury (on the lower
eastern slopes of Chipman Hill) were an Olive-sided Flycatcher and apparent
"pure" male Golden-winged Warbler. Neither bird vocalized, but both offered
excellent views at close range. We also heard a Black-billed Cuckoo giving
its guttural, rolling call.
