{BIRD NOTES} ~ March 13, 2012

American Woodcock


Bird Notes




Two Woodcocks started displaying last night near my house in Guilford.  I hope they stick around.  There was a Song Sparrow under the feeders this morning.

 ---Susan James, Guilford, VT



We heard our first Woodcocks this evening, at least 3 of same on Bonnyvale Rd.

---Ned Pokras, W. Battleboro, VT



Heard a Woodcock peenting across the road from us on Black Mountain Rd at 6:30 tonight.
---Hilke Breder, Brattleboro, VT



I went in search of the barnacle goose and greater white-fronted goose this afternoon in Vernon.  Struck out on Stebbins Road, so went to the hydro dam.  Found a large flock of Canada geese just upstream of the dam and scanned it for an hour with my scope.  No Barnacle, but there were two greater White-fronted Geese.  Also a couple Gadwalls and 4 Widgeons.
---Pieter van Loon, Marlboro, VT



FOY Meadowlarks at Upper Meadows, Rockingham, VT & in the cornfields of S Charlestown, NH.
---Don Clark, Grafton, VT


Observed another yellow banded (Canada) goose today in Walpole with the letters GJN.  Had 2 Great White-fronted with 20 Snows & 1000+ Canadas at Springfield Meadows this morning. Possibly the Vernon birds.
---Don Clark, Grafton, VT



A leisurely ride along Ferry Road in northern Brattleboro afforded us good looks at a pair each of Red-bellied Woodpeckers and Eastern Bluebirds. Both species in brilliant spring plumage. Back at the Retreat Meadows we found the resident Red-tailed Hawk sunning itself in the top of a willow tree, while on Marina Road we observed a pair of Hooded Mergansers puddle-ducking in the little pond at the base of the radio tower.
