Birds & Breakfast

Co-sponsored by Cold Hollow to Canada & the Richford Conservation Commission

Join us for a bird walk in the Richford Town Forest followed by breakfast and a discussion about managing all types of forested landscapes for songbirds. We’ll spend the early morning looking for and listening to a variety of neotropical migratory songbirds who have just arrived back to their breeding grounds. Bird Diva, Bridget Butler will be our guide and bird song interpreter. She’ll help us demystify warbler identification, understand the ethereal songs of thrushes, and much more. Franklin County Forester Nancy Patch will join her for a presentation at breakfast to look at how protecting songbird biodiversity is good practice for forest health and for other plants and wildlife. We’ll keep track of what we see and share our list with Vermont eBird, which helps track bird abundance and distribution for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society.

Please register for information on where to meet for carpooling to the Town Forest. Space is limited to 20 people, please register by contacting Annette Goyne at 933-2416 or email at richfordconservation@gmail.com.
