Just a quick stage of migration note from 14 miles N of Montpelier, about 
1100 feet. Basically everybody you'd expect has shown. Latest arrivals are 
Scarlet Tanager a few days ago and Great Crested Flycatcher 'reeping' 
lustily in the woods. The American Bittern that nests in the wetlands every 
year has been around for quite awhile. Warblers include B & W, Yellowthroat, 
Ovenbird, Nashville, Parula, Blackburnian, Chestnut-sided, Black-throated 
Blue, Black-throated Green, Yellow-rumped, and Yellow. Species of interest 
that haven't arrived yet are Canada Warbler and Mourning Warbler, who both 
breed here regularly, judging by persistent singing on territory. No wood 
pewee yet.
