Location: Nulhegen Branch of Conte W. R. Brunswick, Vermont

Time At Location: 6:20 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.

Great weather though a little chilly at 6:30 a.m. (26) to start the day but warmed upicly by 10:00 a.m. to a high of 58 degrees. Very little wind for morning hours but slight breeze began in early afternoon. The habitat where the count circle was offered few species this time of year as there was no ponds, lakes, marshes, open fields near by. Count circle was decided to be near refuge headquarters this first year in hopes of informing public of what the count was about and for easy access of participants and visitors. Will re-think location on the refuge for next year.
