Three Vermont birders drove up to Mirabel today, hoping to find the partridges. Thanks to a local birder who assisted us with directions, we found 5 gray partridges on rang Ste-Marie, just past the intersection with rang St-Dominique. The partridges were on the left side of the road, just before the farm. The wild turkeys were also present in Mirabel, and we found hundreds of snow buntings and one lapland longspur along route 133 south of Henryville (farm with "Westphalia" on silo).
