As expected no loons on Glen Lake in Castleton this morning for Loon Watch. We did, however, have a nice bird list including a Black-billed Cuckoo, a Northern Waterthrush skulking along the shoreline and a large kettle of Turkey Vultures (24).
 
We also had several non-avian observations for the Vermont Atlas of Life - mostly dragonflies and aquatic plants.
