Not bad birding for the middle of a warm (at last!) day along the D& H Rail Trail out of Castleton. Highlights were a Louisiana Waterthrush downstream of where it is frequently observed on the Castleton University campus and a Hairy Woodpecker with food entering a nest cavity.
(Apropos of Kent's comments about using the correct eBird hotspot, the D & H Rail Trail is divided into eight segments with all of the rail trail hotspots starting with "D & H Rail Trail and running south from Castleton to the NY border in Rupert.)
