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, January 18, 2020, on the Old Railroad Passage Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot on Tabor Road about a mile past the refuge Visitor Center and across the road from Stephen Young Marsh. 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 117 months of walks we have observed 158 species. Hope to see you there!
NOTE: I don't expect the snow to be deep enough to require snowshoes, but considering the recent weather, trails could be icy, so plan accordingly.
