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.
We work with community scientist to monitor and protect individual bird species of special concern: Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Chimney Swift, Common Tern, Bobolink, and Golden-winged Warbler. Learn more.
Migratory birds, such as Golden-winged Warbler, American Woodcock, and Eastern Towhee depend on early successional, or shrubland habitat. Because much of this habitat type is declining throughout their breeding ranges, these species’ populations are also in decline. Audubon Vermont’s Shrubland Bird Program provides opportunities for Vermonters to be part of globally important bird conservation efforts by offering technical support to landowners, municipalities, and partner organizations.

Vermont’s forested landscape is well known for its year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, brilliant fall foliage, the world’s best maple syrup, and… bird habitat! Audubon Vermont’s Healthy Forests programs provide opportunities for all Vermonters; from landowners and land managers to consumers and legislators and everyone in between, to be part of globally important bird conservation efforts.
