On behalf of the Friends of Missiquoi National Wildlife Refuge, I want to thank everyone that came out and took part in today's "Big Sit!" event! The 'Missisquoi Marsh-Mellows' team spent 12 chilly hours at the Stephen J. Young Marsh, documenting 46 species of birds. Highlights included a Sandhill Crane, and a group of black-bellied plovers, both were the first eBird records from the Marsh.
You can peruse our results here: https://ebird.org/vt/profile/OTYwNTI1/US-VT-011
In particular, I want to thank Friends' Board Members Julie and Ken for their organizational, logistical, and culinary contributions.
If you'd like to enjoy the refuge with us, please join us on our monthly birding walks, the 3rd Saturday of each month.
