Greetings Everyone!

Sorry this is so long....catching up for the last two weeks of bird walks at the Green Mountain Audubon Center. We had a new bird to the Center this morning - an EASTERN TOWHEE! Apparently, Bob Spear and Gale Lawrence have been seeing them up at the Birds of Vermont Museum as well.

Drop in for Migratory Bird Day tomorrow at the Birds of Vermont Museum, co-sponsored with Audubon. Details at:  <> Our next bird walk at the Center is Friday, May 26th at 7 am. Meet on the office porch.
