Subject: [VTBIRD] Western Kingbird in East Montpelier
A Western Kingbird was discovered by Karen Saudek on her property on 1350
Dodge Road in East Montpelier. We relocated the bird today and confirmed as
a Western Kingbird. Gray head and chest, yellow belly, black tail with
white outer tail feathers. It is on private property but the homeowners,
Karen and Rick Saudek, welcome respectful birders. The bird is conspicuous,
frequenting an apple orchard on the property. Often perching on wire tree
guards. A mowed trail goes through the orchard, to the right off the
driveway. The bird is likely visible from the road as well. Please don't
park in the driveway.
Good luck if you go looking for it!
