Boreal Birds in the Northeast Kingdom

  • Barlow Street Community Center 39 Barlow Street Saint Albans City, VT, 05478 United States (map)

We'll take a day trip to the Northeast Kingdom's Moose Bog to try our luck at finding birds unique to boreal forests in that region - the Gray Jay, Spruce Grouse, Boreal Chickadee, and Black-backed Woodpecker. Driving the roads near the Wenlock Wildlife Management area and Silvio Conte Wildlife Refuge by van, we'll stop at various habitats for short easy walks along roads, or scope open areas and bogs.

This program is sponsored by the St. Albans Recreation Department. The van will leave the Barlow Street Community Center at 8:30 am and return at approximately 4:30 pm. Please dress for the weather and bring extra clothing. We will make a stop for food, however, you should bring some food and plenty of water. If you have them, we encourage you to bring your field guide, binoculars, camera, and any other optics gear you might want that day. Your guide will have a scope for participants to share. 

Registration is required for bird walks offered by the St. Albans Recreation Department in St. Albans, Vermont. The fee is $35 residents/$46 non-residents. Please call the Recreation Department at 524-1500 x266 to sign up for individual walks! NEED 8 participants for each trip to run! Limited to 10.
