March 9th - 11th brought a string of days with really nice weather, so I committed to making a final push to complete my quest. On the 9th I surveyed the last outlier, Huntington, which is over in the mountains on the west side of the state. Since it's also the home of the Vermont chapter of Audubon, I made that my survey location. Done.
I've been a life-long 'naturalist' -- interested in every aspect of the natural world. I began birding in the early 1990s, and have been a serious birder for over two decades.
