[BIRD NOTES] January 11, 2007



Bird Notes



Today (1/10) at the Retreat Meadows

On the marina side I had 1 EASTERN PHOEBE. The bird was moving around along the far side of the field, near the newly forming pond. I was alerted to the bird first by its chirps, and then I watched it for about 2 minutes before I lost track of it.  There was also 1 Ring-necked Duck that I saw from the Rt. 30 vantage point.  Good birding. ---Taj Schottland, Putney, VT
