A great way to plan out a trip and find places is to use Vermont eBird. You
can plug in the birds you are after and get a map of all the sightings.
For example, here is a map of Spruce Grouse sightings in Vermont with recent
sightings in yellow.

Good luck,

I've lived in Danville thirteen years, and haven't had a lot of time
for birdwatching. Would really like to see some of the particularly
Northern birds:

Boreal chickadee
the Crossbills
Hoary Redpoll
Pine Grosbeak
Gray Jay
the Three-toed Woodpeckers
Spruce Grouse

Is there anywhere in the NEK where one has a reasonable chance of
seeing some of these? and what would be the best time of year? time of

Thanks a lot,
