Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge.
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday June16, 2018 on the Old Railroad Passage Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the refuge parking lot on Tabor Rd, about 1 mile south of the refuge Visitor Center. If you have any questions, email me at <copenhvr...>
The monthly walks gather long-term data on the presence of birds, their abundance, and changes in populations. The information we gather will be entered into the Vermont e-Bird database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. These walks are appropriate for all levels of birders and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about birds throughout the seasons. Led by Ken Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti, Friends of Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge board members.
After 98 months of walks we have observed 152 species. (In May we added an Orchard Oriole to the list.) Hope to see you there!
