Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday March 19, 2011 on the
Old Railroad Passage Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot at the trail
head. From Route 78, follow the signs to the refuge headquarters. Proceed
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.
I was out to the trail yesterday and wished I had taken my snowshoes. So
unless we have a major thaw this week, snowshoes are advised.
Hope to see you there!
