I sent this out on April 20, but it got lost somewhere along the way.

While birding on Bill's Ridge (Northwest face of White Top Mountain), Saturday, 
April 18, Allen Gill and I observed two male Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers vying 
for the attention/affection of a female nearby. They were both drumming away, 
interrupted only by chasing and fussing at each other. The elevation: 
approximately 4800 feet. 

We also heard at least four separate Barred Owls and saw a variety of warblers 
and vireos. Picked up two Broad-winged hawks and a Wild Turkey.

Just wanted to see if I could still climb that mountain.
