Nuthatchin' in Knowlton

  Just got back from a few days in Knowlton with a friend, which is relatively close to the Missisquoi spot in Vermont I visited in November. We ended up staying in a historic house from the 1870s called "Fairwinds". That was a trip. Didn't get a whole lot of birding in, but a couple of Red-breasted Nuthatch were a treat to watch. En route we had a few Red-tailed Hawks, healthy skeins of Canada Geese, and what I'm fairly sure was a cloud of 250+ Horned Larks in a field, put up by a low-flying helicopter.
