Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday April 15, 2017 on the
Black/Maquam Creek Trail. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot on Rte 78,
about 2.5 miles west of Swanton village. If you have any questions, email
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 84 months of walks we have observed 145 species. Hope to see you
NOTE: With all of the recent rain and with the lake level being high, the
trail will likely be wet. Waterproof boots are recommended.
