This post is to let any subscribers to the Burlington Free Press, Times
Argus, Rutland Herald, and Randolph Times know that effective this week,
VCE's weekly birding column will no longer appear. Due to a structural
reorganization of the Free Press Outdoor Living section and the paper's
internal need for cost-cutting measures, they informed us a few days ago
that they will no longer carry our column. Given that the Free Press
was VCE's sole source of (partial) funding for the column, we can no
longer justify our time investment to have it run in the other papers.
We sincerely regret this, as does the Free Press, and we hope to revive
the column someday.
Thanks for the positive comments many of you relayed over the past 2 1/2
years, and don't forget to check our blog
http://vtecostudies.blogspot.com/, on which we will continue to provide
birding info and updates.
