Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday, February 16, 2013 on
the Stephen Young Marsh Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot located
on Tabor Rd about 1 mile past the refuge Visitor Center. 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
After 35 months of walks we have observed 123 species. Hope to see you
The Visitor Center will be opened after the walk until 2:00 pm. Stop in
and see the nature exhibits on display and learn more about the refuge.
