This is not about birds,BUT:


Driving along rte 2 ,we stopped at Snipe Ireland road in Richmond to listen
to the peepers and wood frogs.Then three of us, honestly, saw lightening
bugs across the swamp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I profess to no knowledge of these
bugs, but I think I see them in JULY!! We heard various frogs all along the
Winooski river valley,but as soon as we reached 500 or so feet in altitude ,
there was nothing.

Does anyone  have  knowledge of  lightening bug arrival?
