Just an additional comment on the Common Eiders at Lake Bomoseen. All three
birds were adult males. Team Pipit found them at about 3:30 in the
afternoon and they were still present about an hour later when we left.
These were the first male Common Eiders we have seen in more than 40 years
of birding in Vermont. Will have to check my records to determine whether
we have seen young or female Common Eiders previously....
