Second question: Wood Thrush or Brown Thrasher
On a run I saw a pretty light rufous colored bird jumping/flying low on the ground along the hedge row of a cemetery under a feeder. I got closer and watched it fly up into an apple tree. The tail seemed long to me, but I didn't notice it's eyes. It also seemed as larger if not larger than a robin which leads me to believe it's a Thrasher, but again being in Vermont and in a semi-suburban area, a Thrasher seemed out of the question. While in the Apple tree, it also went after a robin perched in another branch and flew after it.
Any thoughts about this?

VT is well within brown thrasher's range, and it does sound like what you saw.,

Yeah, think it was the Black Vulture. Any ideas as to why they're moving North?
