Birders, Join VINS for our 27th Annual Birdathon!
It's that time of year again! VINS will host its 27th Annual Birdathon on
Saturday, May 21st, helping to raise crucial funds for various VINS research
projects, education programs, and general operations. The raindate is
Sunday, May 22nd. Every year, birders from all over the state drive,
bicycle, kayak, or walk from dawn to dusk looking for birds. On this day,
wherever they choose and for however long they want, their mission is to
find and record as many bird species as possible. Pledges are collected for
every species they identify, similar to a walk-a-thon. Sponsor forms and
bird checklists can be obtained by contacting Debbie Ogden at VINS at (802)

eBird, an on-line database for tracking birds across Vermont and North
America. Visit Vermont eBird-http://www.ebird.org/vins/ for more
