VERMONT BREEDING BIRD ATLAS POSTING
We do intend to repeat the bird calling contest next year. We're thinking of asking the winners to attend the VT-NH Bird Conference on October 15, to sing their winning songs!

VERMONT BREEDING BIRD ATLAS POSTING
Yesterday, when slightly outside of our blocks in Randolph Center we watched, for a considerable length of time, a Bonaparte's Gull, an American Bittern and a Spotted Sandpiper.  They were all at the swimming pond at the private Lake Champagne Campground.  Fortunately, the Gull was feeding along the edge of the pond and we had plenty of time to confirm it's markings.  Never expected to see one of those around here!
 
Roz, we attended the bird call contest last Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The young man from Maine was fabulous.  And to see and hear those young teenagers go to the mike and do their bird calls was such fun.  I am still smiling about the whole contest.  We hope you can continue that next year.
