  Subject: [VTBIRD] Fw: eBird Report - Vernon Dam lower pool , 2/24/11

  Went to Vernon to look for ducks today. In the early morning mist they were hard to ID but, patience helped. I didn't see large numbers but, there was variety. Couldn't pick out the Barrows if it was still there. Also, I couldn't figure how to get to the above dam section. Everything looked to me to be inaccessible to the public. Could someone provide instructions. A male Cardinal was singing and a RB Woodpecker was calling from the island. A Brown Creeper was working some trees along 142 with a couple of hawking Bluebirds. All under the gaze of a Red-tailed Hawk. Left to look for other things and when I stopped back quick at about 8:15, there were only the Black Ducks and 3 Golden-eyes.
