Join us as we monitor a variety of bird species at Missisquoi National
Wildlife Refuge.

This month's Bird Monitoring Walk will be on Saturday October 15, 2011 on
the Old Railroad Passage Trail.  Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot across
the road from Stephen Young Marsh.  Heading west on Route 78 from Swanton,
turn left on Tabor Rd and proceed about a half mile past the refuge
headquarters building.  The parking lot is on the left.  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!
