Series Notes:

It’s a Bird’s Life (with Allison Gergely)

Vermont’s birds catch our notice during breeding season – but they lead interesting lives through the whole year. Learn the physical characteristics, seasonal behaviors, and vocalizations with carvings, visuals, touchable props, and bird literature. Each session will focus on a different species. For those who attended last year’s sessions, there will be all new birds for 2019.
