Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday December 20, 2014 on
the Jeep Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the Louie's Landing parking lot located
on Rte 78 approx 3 ½ miles west of Swanton. From Louie's Landing, we will
drive back the road to the trail head at Mac's Bend. If you have any
questions, contact me at [log in to unmask]
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
Refuge board members.
After 55 months of walks we have observed 134 species. Hope to see you
