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 December 21, 2013 on
the Jeep Trail.  Meet at 8:00 AM at the Louie's Landing fishing access
parking lot located on Rte 78 approx 3  miles west of Swanton.  We will
meet at the gate and drive back to Mac's Bend where the trail begins.  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 Ken
Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti, Friends of Missisquoi National Wildlife
Refuge members.

After 45 months of walks we have observed 131 species.  Hope to see you
