Join us for our monthly Bird Monitoring Walk at Missisquoi National
This month's walk will be on Saturday December 15, 2018 on the Jeep Trail.
Meet at 8:00 AM at the Louie's Landing boat launch parking lot on Rte 78,
about 3.5 miles west of Swanton village. We will then drive to the trail
head at Mac's Bend. If you have any questions, email me at

The monthly walks gather long-term data on the presence of birds, their
abundance, and changes in populations. The information we gather is entered
into the Vermont e-Bird database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology. 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 104 months of walks we have observed 158 species. Hope to see you
