Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday January 16, 2016 on
the Maquam/Black Creek Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the refuge parking area
on Rte 78, about 2-1/2 miles west of Swanton Village. 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 69 months of walks we have observed 139 species. Hope to see you
