Join us for our monthly Bird Monitoring Walk at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge.
This month's walk will be on Saturday February 16, 2019 on the Stephen Young Marsh Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot on Tabor Road, 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 is entered into the Vermont e-Bird database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. 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 106 months of walks we have observed 158 species. Hope to see you there!
*--> NOTE on possible government shutdown: *To the best of my knowledge, if another government shutdown would start at the end of this week, refuge trails will again be open, as they were during the last shutdown.
