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 18, 2014 on
the Old Railroad Passage Trail.  Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot on
Tabor Rd, about 1 mile south of the refuge Visitor Center and across the
road from the marsh.  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 board members.

After 54 months of walks we have observed 134 species.  Hope to see you
there!
