Summer Meets Fall and Birds Are Everywhere
Several years ago, Ted Murin commented that there should be a state holiday in August called Convergence Day, because birders might see more species on that day than on any other day of the year. Year-round birds are here; most of the birds that nested in Vermont haven’t left yet; and many birds that nested farther north are beginning to come through the state as they head south. Come celebrate Convergence Day with Island Arts! There will be a talk on Thursday 8/25 from 9-11 followed by a walk on Saturday 8/27 starting at 7AM. And after these events, you can have lunch at Hero’s Welcome or on the lawn at North Hero House – both delicious! – or just drive around and enjoy the beautiful Champlain Islands. Go to islandarts.org for specifics.
