Field Ornithology Day 3: Forest Birds

May 20thth, 2020
7am-12pm
Weather: Sunny (not a cloud in the sky), 60 degrees Fahrenheit
Green Mountain Audubon Center, Huntington VT
Habitat: On the left side of the road (West) was a forested area with many understory trees. There was a mix of coniferous and deciduous vegetation. The ground was scattered with leaves, twigs and downed logs. This area is where I heard the different warblers and thrushes. I also saw my first Scarlet Tanager and my first Red-breasted Nuthatch. On the right side of the road (East) the elevation dropped a little bit. The area was still forested, but there were more patches of open habitat that were close to water. There were some streams, vernal pools, and a body of water that was something between a swamp and a pond. This area is where I saw my first Brown Thrasher. I also saw some of the more general birds in this area, such as Common Grackles and Red-winged Blackbirds.

Veery (3)—I didn’t hear its song so it was difficult to identify at first. I heard its call and then I saw it in the trees. It then landed on the ground and started scurrying across logs. Its warm, reddish-brown back feathers and distinct call gave it away.
