Bird Notes



Miller Farm Red-tailed Hawk

Got these photos today while raking hay.

The first is when it was catching a mouse.

The middle one when it caught a snake.

The one in the tree was as it was consuming a mouse.

I saw it catch three mice plus the snake while I was raking.

Hope you enjoy.

Westminster Gobblers (8/31)

We just had a mother turkey and her ten adolescents spend time in our back horse pasture.  I tried to go to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Wild Turkey Brood Survey and couldn't get to any useful links, and I know today is the final day for the survey.*  I had to let someone know.  We are located in Westminster West off the Patch Road.

*Thank you Bev, but we were unable to submit this info. Irene had us delayed in New York State.

"Birding in Scotland"


Hector Galbraith cut his birding teeth in his native Scotland. He will take us on a return trip to seabird colonies, estuaries filled with migratory shorebirds, and let us glimpse some of the vagrant migrant songbirds which stir the twitching blood of British birders.  

This program will be presented in Brattleboro's Brooks Library's meeting room and is sponsored by Southeastern VT Audubon Society.


Please share your birding news with us. Were there any birds nesting in your yard? What have you seen while on a trip?
