There are ducks and geese swimming in most of them.
However, I spotted this strangely unusual bird in a pond near the cows.
I would of never noticed it except that it did look like a stick sticking up out of the puddle, and I knew there was no stick, so I looked again.
WHAT IS THIS ?
The rain has stopped, temporarily, so I got a few photos and went home to look at my bird book.
It ain't a Snipe.
And I did not find anything that closely resembles it at all.
3 hours later I went back down to water the herd and the bird was still in the EXACT same spot. Has not moved or blinked.
Looks like he is frozen in time.
So the question is:
WHAT IS THIS ? And is it suppose to be in Vermont?
That storm last night and this morning was intense, so could this bird have been forced to fly inland?
Is it a beach bird?
Please call all your bird watching friends and let me know what this bird is.
Strange things DO end up in this remote area of Vermont.
And could someone PLEASE make it stop raining.
