This afternoon I stopped by Sperry Pond on Route 63 in Middlebury to scout
for our upcoming Audubon Birdathon, and was surprised by a NELSON'S SPARROW
in the cattails right along the side of the path!!

I got two horrible shots with only my phone, but got great looks for a few
minutes.  It was not as gray on the back as I expected, more pale brown,
but very orange on the face.

Parking is a bit limited, but it is open to the public.
