Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday July 20, 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.
--> Note that this month's walk was originally scheduled for Maquam/Black
Creek Trail but has been changed due to high water conditions.
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 Ken
Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti, Friends of Missisquoi National Wildlife
After 40 months of walks we have observed 128 species. Hope to see you
