Subject: [VTBIRD] Bohemian Waxwings and probable Pine Grosbeak in Hinesburg
Just had a small group (about five) Bohemian Waxwings eating berries on a tree in the parking lot between the United Church and the Town Hall.

I suspected seeing some there once before, a couple of weeks ago, but didn’t have my binos at the time, so I’ve made sure to have them with me every day since, and this time was able to get a good look at the rufous undertail coverts.

Pretty sure there was a female Pine Grosbeak feeding in the tree also, but I can’t be sure as it flew before I got a long look, and I don’t know that bird well enough to be sure with a quick glance. Honestly, though, I can’t think of anything else it could’ve been.
