Spring Migrants in Vermont-Mid-April 2014

Spring has finally come, although there is still snow on the ground here in Vermont. Here are a few of the birds seen in the last week or so.  The Ring-necked Ducks were close by, and it was one of the few times I’ve ever seen the rings around their necks.  The Gadwalls were far off, but I loved their flight patterns. Rusty Blackbirds are quite rare here- So glad to have seen these. A northern Harrier in Norwich, Vermont is not very common -they are seen mostly further north. The Northern Mockingbirds are  winter residents, but I only recently saw them.

I’ve also included a watercolor painting I just finished of a Northern Harrier about to take off that I saw at Dead Creek in Addison, Vermont
