Bird Notes


Hola from Mexico!

Gerry (James), Hollie (Bowen) and Paul (Love), and I are in Mexico for the week.  Yesterday we got fabulous looks at a very rare HARPY EAGLE, which has been recently reintroduced to the adjoining National Park.

---Susan James, Guilford




The feeders have been busy the last several days.


    Goldfinch - 25+

    Junco    - 15+

    Chickadee - 7+

    Titmouse - 2

    Bluejay - 2

    White-breasted Nuthatch - 1

    Purple Finch - 2


Noticeable by their absence are woodpeckers.  I saw a Hairy at the suet on Sunday, but haven't seen him since and not a single Downy has shown up.  Very unusual. ---Molly Martin, Marlboro, VT     



John James Audubon

The program at the library on Tuesday drew a sizable crowd and no one was disappointed. The splendid lithographs from Audubon’s The Birds of America was ably presented by our own Doug Wilson with the cooperation of Jerry Carbone of the Brattleboro Library.

     The worth of this collection is unfathomable, so extreme care was taken with each book by having white gloved page turners stationed at tables along the walls of the conference room to leaf through the pages for the onlookers.


It was truly a once in a lifetime peek at the works of the greatest of American naturalists, John James Audubon.
