This afternoon Matan and I headed up to Guildford in southern Vermont to look for salamanders only to encounter a blizzard when we got there! It was short lived though, and although I had few expectations bird-wise, Weatherhead Hollow Pond produced a few nice surprises namely a flock of about 25 Yellow-rumped Warblers and an eastern Palm Warbler along the shore, and my first local Green Heron of the year.

One of a fairly large flock of about 25 males sitting out a snow storm!
Barton Cove in Gill was again rather quiet this morning but produced a 'new' non-breeding plumage Common Loon and a Greater Yellowlegs.
