Early birds will be making their way back to Vermont just as the buds are bursting open on the trees. Join us as we find out if the Woodcocks, Vireos, Tree Sparrows, or Red-winged Blackbirds have returned and established their nesting territories. This is a great time of year to be able to see the birds before the trees get their leaves.
Following our regular monitor route, we will search for birds in various habitats at the Audubon Center. Intended for those with experience using binoculars and listening to bird song. We will identify as many as possible of the birds we see or hear, and record counts of their population numbers.
The long-term data we gather contributes to the eBird database, which is available to a global community of educators, land managers, ornithologists, conservation biologists, and the public. Explore bird sightings from Audubon Vermont's Green Mountain Audubon Center.
We typically finish our monitoring route by about 10 am, but you can leave earlier if necessary.
Fee: Donations are appreciated.
