February Bird Monitoring: Great Backyard Bird Count

February 15, 2020 - Huntington, VT

No registration needed. Meet at Audubon Vermont Office.

Come monitor birds with us this month as part of the Great Backyard Bird Count.  The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are. 

Following our regular monitor route, we will search for birds in various habitats at the Audubon Center.  This is a great opportunity to build your experience using binoculars and listening to bird song. We will identify the birds we see or hear, and record counts of their population numbers. Binoculars and bird guides are available to borrow. 

The long-term data we gather contributes to the eBird database, which is available to a global community of educators, land managers, ornithologists, conservation biologists, and the public. Explore bird sightings from Audubon Vermont's Green Mountain Audubon Center.

We typically finish our monitoring route by about 10 am, but you can leave earlier if necessary.

Donations to Audubon are appreciated.

Regarding the weather: If there is light snow forecast, we will go ahead with the walk. If strong winds or heavy snow are expected, we will reschedule the walk. Please check our Facebook page if in doubt about the weather. We'll post an update if the forecast looks iffy.

Trail/accessibility information: Our walk will be at a slow (birding) pace and will cover approximately 1.5 miles. The trail is unpaved and there are two short sections of stairs on the route. Wheelchair-accessible bathroom facilities are located in the office, our meeting place. If you require accommodations or have questions about accessibility, please contact Audubon Vermont at 802/434-3068.
