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 May 18, 2019 on the
Stephen Young Marsh Trail.

SPECIAL NOTE:  This month's walk will be a part of the refuge's celebration
of World Migratory Bird Day.  We will be meeting for the walk at the Refuge
Visitor Center on Tabor Rd at 7:30 AM.  Pre-registration is required.
Please call the refuge at 802-868-4781 to register.  If you have any
questions, just reply to this email.  For more information about World
Migratory Bird Day, please visit:

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 109 months of walks we have observed 158 species.  Hope to see you
there!
