The Friends of Missisquoi and the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge are
celebrating International Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 21st. Please
join us for a fun-filled day on the refuge - everyone is welcome!
The day begins with a sunrise birding walk on the MaQuam & Black Creek
trails. Meet in the parking lot on Route 78 at 5:30.
At 7:30, we'll start the day at the Refuge Headquarters on Tabor Road,
where people can split into groups for different birding adventures. There
will be a beginning birders walk on the Discovery Trail as well as guided
walks on the Railroad Passage Trail and Stephen Young Marsh. Boat tours on
the Missisquoi River will cover the delta area - all together, every public
area of the refuge will have birders!
At 10:30, we'll reconvene at the headquarters to compare counts from the
morning. The Friends of Missisquoi will provide a pizza lunch, followed by
a talk by SUNY Plattsburg student Boomer Malanchuk on his research into
nesting cavities on the refuge.
Also opening on Saturday the 21st is our annual art show! This year's
theme is an indoor birdwalk, featuring works of birds found on the refuge.
Works are available for sale through July 22nd. Any artists wishing to
display their work, please visit friendsofmissisquoi.org/artshow for more
We're looking forward to seeing you next Saturday!
