Today i ventured across the river (Connecticut)to join up with the Southeastern Vermont Audubon Society to bird the trail at the Hinsdale Setbacks in New Hampshire. As previously reported, the Palm Warblers were abundant. We estimated a conservative count of 50 birds. They were flitting along the trail and shoreline for half a mile. Interspersed were a Pine Warbler, Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher and Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Adding to the show were two Bald Eagles, two Ospreys on nest, one carrying a long tree branch back to the nest for a little maintenance. Common Mergansers were plentiful cruising the river. Thank you SVAS for leading the walk. A beautiful day to be out walking and birding.
