Join Friends Board Members Ken Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti for a birding walk on the Maquam/Black Creek Trail!

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 parking lot on Rte 78, about 2-1/2 miles west of Swanton Village.
