First Real Vermont Birding Day

Today was my first legit birding day. It was a bit quiet for most of the day, but good species popped up every once in a while. Lifers for Leigh included Cape May Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Veery, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Other sightings included Red-breasted Nuthatch, Black and White Warbler, a Hermit Thrush, Red-eyed Vireos, and Black-capped Chickadees galore.
I can tell I'm becoming a "leaf-peeper" because 95% of my photos were of trees instead of birds. That's probably due in part to the fact that the looks were pretty high up and fleeting, and the lighting fairly dismal.
