July Heart of Summer Bird Monitoring

Enjoy a cool morning of birding at Audubon. Catch a glimpse of the birds that nest in Vermont before they starting thinking about their fall migration journey. Following our regular monitoring route, we will search for birds in various habitats at the Audubon Center. We will identify as many as possible of the birds we see or hear, and record counts of their population numbers. We typically finish our monitoring route by about 9:00 am, but you can leave earlier if necessary.

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. This program is free and open to the public. No registration needed. Donations to support our education and conservation work are appreciated.

Regarding the weather: Normally with light rain forecasted, we will go ahead with the walk. If strong winds or heavy rain are expected, we will reschedule the walk. Please check our website if in doubt about the weather. We'll post an update if we need to cancel/reschedule. 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.
