Back in the USA
Sorry for the lack of new posts. I was traveling in Europe and my internet connections where spotty - not to mention I didn't have much time.
Europe is great, lots of history, art, good food and drink; but the wildlife and even bird life is not much. In 3 weeks I say a total of 4 deer, 2 squirrels and a bunch of dark brown/black birds. Admittedly I was not up at dawn or in great habitat much of the time, but it was still pretty bleak.
I scouted turkey this morning, great sunrise, lots of bird song, flushed two hens from their roost and saw osprey, mallards, woodies and mergs. Also otter, mink, coyote and beaver sign. It is great to be in Vermont in the spring!
