Bridget Butler and I are starting a monthly bird monitoring walk at
Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge. The walks will be on the third
Saturday of each month from 8:00 AM until approximately 10:00 AM. We
plan to rotate among the four best birding trails on the refuge.
Below is the announcement for our first walk. Hope you can join us!
Join us as we monitor a variety of birds species at Missisquoi
National Wildlife Refuge. The monthly walks will gather long-term data
on the presence of birds, their abundance, and changes in populations.
The information we gather will be entered into the Vermont e-Bird
database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and
the National Audubon Society. These walks are appropriate for all
levels of birders and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about
birds throughout the seasons. Led by Bridget Butler and Ken
Copenhaver, Friends of the Missisquoi Wildlife Refuge board members.
This month's walk will be on March 20, 2010 on the Old Railroad
Passage Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot across the road
from Stephen Young Marsh on Tabor Road in West Swanton. Contact Ken
