Monthly Bird Monitoring Walk @ Jeep Trail
Dec 16 @ 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Join Friends Board Members Ken Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti for a birding walk on the Jeep Trail on Saturday, December 16th from 8 AM until 10 AM.

The purpose of these monthly walks is to gather long-term data on the presence of birds, their abundance, and changes in populations.  Observations will be entered into the Vermont eBird database where data is stored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society.  These walks are appropriate for birders of all skill levels and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about birds throughout the seasons.  The walks are available for all skill levels. Binoculars and a bird field guide are helpful.  Dress for weather conditions.

Meet at the Louie’s Landing boat access area on Rte 78, about 3-1/2 miles west of Swanton Village.  We will drive from Louie’s Landing to the trail head at Mac’s Bend.

After 92 months of walks we have observed 150 species. Hope to see you there!
