Members of our Youth Birding Program set out today for the Mid-winter Bald Eagle Survey; a project started in the late-70's to monitor the recovery of this species. Although our group didn't see any Bald Eagles along our transect, which covered the Lower Winooski River, we had an abundance of winter finch sightings. Pine Siskin, Common Redpoll, White-winged Crossbill, and Pine Grosbeaks were all seen. Several Canada Geese, Common Mergansers, and a Northern Pintail were also spotted amongst a group of several hundred Mallards and Black Ducks at Muddy Brook Park in South Burlington.
