This is the first in a series of ten or so reports that I will be making
for the next week or so. My Y.E.S. (Year End Studies) Plan is Day Hikes
in Vermont. During these few weeks, we will be going on various hikes
throughout Vermont and I thought that this would be a great oppourtunity
to study some of our mountain bird life. The Highlight of each day is
bolded.
