[BIRD NOTES ] February 14, 2007

Bird Notes

A single Evening Grosbeak at our feeder in Marlboro about 7:45 a.m.(2/13). First seen in several years.

---Molly Martin, Marlboro, VT



I am 99% sure (after confirming with Richard Foye)that I saw 2 flocks of WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS this past Sunday(2/4).  One flock at the Long Trail parking area on the Kelley Stand Road in Stratton, and the other farther in towards Stratton Pond.  It was nice to see these neighbors from the north down here on a cold winter's day. ---Jeff Nugent, Brattleboro, VT



Since I have never seen this before I shall report it, though it may not be unusual.  I am referring to the fact that on two days last week I had a Northern Flicker on my suet feeder.  It stabbed at it for about fifteen minutes each time.

 ---John Kristensen, Guilford, VT



Thank you to Rhonda in NY state for the wonderful Red-shouldered Hawk story.

     We have a Carolina Wren at our feeders and a few Goldfinches.  The wrens appear here in Guilford every few months.

---Susan James, Guilford, VT



The numbers are diminishing, but the Cedar Waxwings are still coming to the ornamental crabapple on Greenleaf Street.

Baxter State Park and Katahdin

Tuesday, February 20 at 7 p.m.

in the Brooks Memorial Library Meeting Room

Mark Mikolas and Bill Guenther will present a talk and slide show on Maine's Baxter State Park. This park, more than 200,000 acres in size, is uniquely managed according to the wishes of its benefactor, Percival Baxter, who stipulated that it "Shall forever be kept and remain in the Natural Wild State." Katahdin is the highest point in Maine, the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, and home to the formidable hiking challenge known as the "knife edge."

Southeastern Vermont Audubon Programs are free and open to the public.



Please keep us abreast of what birds you are seeing, whether at home or on a trip in or out of the Windham County area.
