First, I must say - what a beautiful State you're in. I arrived on the
Greyhound on Wednesday, great views of the Green Mountains with the colours
just starting to change. Anyway, back to the birds, here's what I've seen so

All the Winooski River sightings are down to Jeremy Brooks. We did a 2 hour
canoe tour down the Winooski River to Delta Park. I highly recommend his
tours. He cleared away some of my European confusion.
