Vermont's Priority Bird Species

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 young forests and mature forests. Additionally, we work with community scientist to monitor and protect individual bird species of special concern: Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Chimney Swift, Common Tern, and Golden-winged Warbler. Learn more about how to get involved.
