Monthly Bird Walk

Jeep Trail
Rte 78
West Swanton

Please join us for our monthly bird monitoring walks on the refuge.  Ken Copenhaver and Julie Filiberti lead the walks on various refuge trails on the third Saturday of each month (except December, when it will be on the second Saturday). The purpose of the walks is to gather long-term data on the presence of birds, their abundance, and changes in populations. Observations are 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.

Our walk this month will be on Saturday, August 17 from 8:00 to 10:00 AM at the Jeep Trail.  Meet at the Louie’s Landing fishing access on Rte 78, about 3.5 miles past Swanton village. We will meet at the gate and drive in to the trailhead at Mac’s Bend.
