A handful of Birders observed the pair of Black Bellied Whistling Ducks this afternoon from 2PM - 4PM, thanks to the keen eyes of Team G&B from Poultney. The Ducks were first observed from the iron bridge on Shoreham Depot Road. If one looks west toward the Wooden Covered Railroad Bridge from the Iron Bridge on Shoreham Depot Rd., the Ducks were along the right bank, which is actually the NORTH bank of the Lemon Fair River between the iron and covered bridges, maybe 50 yards away (east) from the Covered Bridge. They were on the same side as the log where they were originally seen. They are also visible from the left or south bank of the Lemon Fair River, accessible after crossing the CoveredRailroad bridge and descending to the left, heading back east, down a small trail about ten yards, then looking across the water.
