The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife's Bird Report for October 16 is available: https://vtfishandwildlife.com/watch-wildlife/bird-watching/vermont-bird-reports
Reports are posted every two weeks, to highlight seasonal patterns and things to look for throughout the state. They also give a glimpse into some of the work the Department is currently doing with all manner of birds.
The October 16 Report includes American Woodcock banding, rough-legged hawks arriving, and "white butt birds"!
