Location Details

Green Mountain Audubon Center

Please meet on the Visitor Center's porch!

Early birds will be making their way back to Vermont just as the buds are bursting open on the trees. Join us as we find out if the Woodcocks, Vireos, Tree Sparrows, or Red-winged Blackbirds have returned and established their nesting territories. This is a great time of year to be able to see the birds before the trees get their leaves.

Following our regular monitor route, we will search for birds in various habitats at the Audubon Center. We will identify as many as possible of the birds we see or hear, and record counts of their population numbers. This is a great opportunity to build your experience using binoculars and listening to bird song. Beginners are welcome!

We typically finish our monitoring route by about 10 am, but you can leave earlier if necessary.

The long-term data we gather contributes to the eBird database, which is available to a global community of educators, land managers, ornithologists, conservation biologists, and the public. Explore bird sightings from Audubon Vermont's Green Mountain Audubon Center.

This program is free and open to the public. No registration needed. Donations to support our education and conservation work are appreciated.

Regarding the weather: Normally with light snow/rain forecasted, we will go ahead with the walk. If strong winds or heavy snow/rain are expected, we will reschedule the walk. Please check our website if in doubt about the weather. We'll post an update if we need to cancel/reschedule. Please check our website, Facebook, and Instagram for updates. 

Trail/accessibility information: Our walk will be at a slow (birding) pace and will cover approximately 1.5 miles. The trail is unpaved and there are two short sections of stairs on the route. Wheelchair-accessible bathroom facilities are located in the office, our meeting place. If you require accommodations or have questions about accessibility, please contact Audubon Vermont at 802-434-3068.
