Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday February 19, 2011 on
the Stephen Young Marsh Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot at the
trail head. From Route 78, follow the signs to the refuge
on Tabor Road about ¾ mile past the headquarters. The parking area is on
the left directly across from the Stephen Young Marsh. If you have any
questions, just reply to this email.
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 Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge board members.
Hope to see you there!
