For the record, I did find Fish Crows in Bennington back in the late 1980's.
I'll need to go back to my old records to find the details.

Although Fish Crows have yet to be confirmed as a breeding bird in Vermont, 
they are annual spring/summer visitors to Chittenden County, with Red 
Rocks, Centennial Woods, and Price Chopper being favored hang-outs.  There 
was one that may have been at the Intervale during the Thayer's Gull visit 
last winter, but never confirmed.  So, it would be a nice bird to document 
as there isn't much data between August and February.
