Roy Pilcher's posting on the yellow-rumps seems to be extending a pattern
that has been reported elsewhere in New England into VT. Over the last week
or so there have been reported from various states common yellowthroat (MA
and NH), parula (NH), black-thr green (NH), Wilsons (MA), yellow-rumps (NH),
Nashville (MA), palm (MA). So, seems like lots of birds remaining around, no
doubt due to the mild (non-existent) winter.
