Birds in Vermont

Audubon Vermont works under National Audubon’s Atlantic Flyway Initiative to protect birds and their habitats in Vermont.  Our science-based approach works to save birds through conservation, education, and advocacy.  We collaborate with landowners, land managers, government agencies, and private industry to improve habitat quality for priority bird species. Birds that nest in Vermont’s forests, shrublands and grasslands benefit from our habitat restoration efforts on working lands, and Vermont’s endangered species recovery efforts have seen measurable successes throughout the State.
