Emily, Welcome to Vermont!
I hope Ted & Bryan won't mind but I'm going to plug their book.
"Birdwatching in Vermont" is an excellent resource for Vermont birding. Chapter 4 is
"Birdwatching Areas" and highlights many of the top birding locations in the
state. The book contains many excellent maps and advice on where and when
to look for birds. Chapter 5 is 'Species Accounts' and provides detail as to
when birds are seen in the state. Of course, there is much more to this
great volume but those are some highlights. The authors are Ted Murin and
Again, welcome to Vermont.
