Hi Ken-

It is quite possible that one or two of our GMAS members will join you on Saturday if weather permits. Questions: 
(1) How are the deer flies (and what's the best way to protect against them)? and (2) Are muck boots necessary?, Swim fins?

Subject: [VTBIRD] Monthly Friends of Missisquoi NWR Bird Monitoring Walk

This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday July 16, 2011 on the
Maquam/Black Creek Trail.  Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot at the trail
head.  Heading west on Route 78 from Swanton, the parking lot is on the left
just past the first refuge signs.  If you have any questions, just reply to
this email.

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 Bridget Butler and Ken
Copenhaver, Friends of Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge board members.

Hope to see you there!
