Hermit Thrush and Osprey Nest

My lunchtime hike today revealed two birds, two ducks (mallards) and a single turtle.  It was in the 60s and breezy, a beautiful day.  Saw several butterflies flying above or along the roads to and from my hike.  Most were probably cabbage whites, but I couldn't say for sure.  I also think I spotted an American Kestrel on the road home.  Wish I could have stopped safely to take a look, but there was no place to pull over!

 Hermit Thrush (new to life list), also Vermont's state bird

 Wish I could see into the nest!
