Red Winged Blackbirds Return to the Mad River Valley

Posted on Wednesday 4 March 2009

Mad Birders in Waitsfield and Moretown, as well as birders throughout Vermont, have eagerly reported sightings of Red Winged Blackbirds over the past two weeks.  While most people associate the American Robin with the Spring return of migratory songbirds, here in Vermont the Red Winged Blackbird is usually the first to arrive, during the last week of February.  American Robins though, should be returning any day, so keep a look out for them as well.
