Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday October 17, 2015 on
the Old Railroad Passage Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot located
on Tabor Road approx 1 mile south of the refuge Visitor Center and across
the road from 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 Ken
Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti, Friends of Missisquoi National Wildlife
Refuge board members.
After 66 months of walks we have observed 137 species. Hope to see you
