Searsburg was the most interesting stop during the day. Searsburg has a very small population, is located in the higher elevations of the Green Mountains, and is home to Green Mountain Power's Searsburg Wind Power Facility. GMP's ridgeline turbines were in the clouds when I arrived, but the droning of the turbines could be heard on the facing ridge, a mile away. I was reminded of a never-ending, distant freight train, or the rumbling of the White River near my home; I could see how some folks would be disturbed by the continual sound, yet for my short visit it was a point of curiosity. My survey area was 0.3 miles along VT-8, at about 2500 feet. Despite the low cloud deck, and the accompanying drizzle, I was able to see and hear a nice assortment of bird species.
