Participate in Global Big Day on May 5. Look for birds and record your sightings at eBird.org in this exciting 24-hour quest to collectively record as many bird species as possible across the world. Let’s break a record! https://ebird.org/globalbigday
Spring migration will be in full swing for our May monitoring walk. Watch for warblers. Spy the sparrows. Hear the hawks.
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 9:30 am, but you can leave earlier if necessary.
Donations to Audubon are appreciated.
