Spent much of the day birding in Brattleboro and Vernon, VT birding at the Brattleboro treatment plant, the east side of Brattleboro retreat, the fields by the nuke plant substation, the stump dump on Stebbins Road, and Fort Dummer State Park.  Best bird was a Dickcissel at the water tratment plant.  Also had 5 warbler species - 1 Nashville and 1 Tennessee along with numerous Palms, Yellow-rumps and Yellowthroats; and 1 Blue-headed Vireo.  Eight species of sparrows including good numbers of Lincoln's Sparrows was nice.  I just put all the sightings in e-bird - surprisingly e-bird thinks the 4 Indigo Buntings I had are rare.
