Subject: [VTBIRD] FYI: Lagoon Road HEADS UP!
Good afternoon, Today when leaving Lagoon Road in Hinesburg (after seeing a Kestrel and Rough-legged Hawk), I was stopped by the police. It seems the neighbors called the police when they saw a car drive down Lagoon Road. It was the folks that recently bought the property surrounding the treatment plant. I assured the officer that it is a popular birding spot, especially in the spring and I was just looking for ducks in open water. I mentioned birders have been given permission to bird there, and have been doing so for many years. Of course when I looked for the business card given to me by the manager of the facility, I could not find it, but I remembered his name and after it was checked (as well as my license) I was free to leave. Hopefully it will not be an issue for anyone else and we will be able to continue to enjoy birds there.
