Claire Reilly

Priority Bird Species Conservation Intern

While growing up in Massachusetts, Claire’s passion for birds began when she was gifted a pocket field guide to the shorebirds of New England for her tenth birthday. She came to Vermont to pursue a career in conservation and fell in love with forest and shrubland birds during her time at the University of Vermont, where she recently graduated with a B.S. in Wildlife & Fisheries Biology and Environmental Science. She is very excited to gain hands-on experience in avian conservation, sharpen her identification skills, and learn more about the life history of Vermont’s birds this summer. When not birding for work, she likes to bird for fun, spend time outdoors, roller-skate, craft, or try something new.
