October 17 , 2007

The NBNC teen birders headed over to the Champlain Valley today to check out the Snow Geese and search for other migrants. We estimated there were 750 to 1,000 Snow Geese visible in the fields north of Route 17 at Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area. There also a few lingering shorebirds including Black-bellied Plover, Lesser Yellowlegs and a probable Long-billed Dowitcher.

The highlight of our day though was seeing the family of 3 Sandhill Cranes in Bristol that nesting this past summer at Lake Winona - a first nesting record for this beautiful species in Vermont
