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.

Monitoring Species of Greatest Conservation Need
The Christmas Bird Count is a great time to get together with local bird enthusiasts, to count birds, and to participate in one of the longest-running community science programs in the nation.
National Audubon has identified 32 priority bird species within the Atlantic Flyway. These species are threatened in terms of their long-term survival and embody a range of other birds and wildlife that share the same habitat conditions. Vermont’s priority bird species include species that nest in forests, shrublands, and grasslands. Learn more...
