Beginning about a week ago Mad Birders began reporting Bohemian Waxwing sightings in the valley.  Flocks of between 30 and 70 have been reported in Fayston and Waitsfield and also at various locations throughout the State of Vermont.  These fruit and berry loving birds are winter migrants, usually seen in Vermont from late November until late April.  Wonderfully gregarious and sociable, Bohemians are known to appear in large flocks.  The distinctive and exotic appearance along with the sweet high pitched song of the Bohemian Waxwing is a real treat for the winter birder.
