As you probably know Berlin Pond is one of Vermont's IBAs and we continue to collect data at all of the IBAs year round. They are also being surveyed as part of the Breeding Bird Atlas. You (or anybody) can pass information on to me or record the info at VT EBird (http://www.ebird.org/VINS/. All of the IBAs are listed in the Hot Spots drawdown. If folks want more information about the IBA Program and monitoring efforts they can contact me at the address below.
