This is an online free event; please register with Audubon Vermont at [ Link Coming Soon ].
While we can talk generally amongst ourselves about what is exciting outside during our long winters, this program will work best if you bring a question or two (tuning in to listen is also ok)! Questions on migration, hibernation, winter, wildlife, etc are all welcome topics.
We love hosting free programs, and are able to do so thanks to generous donors like you! Please consider a donation to one of our organizations:
October is one of our favorite months. It’s not that there’s a larger diversity of birds (that’s June), but it’s the month with the Big Sit! For us that means birders, friends (some of course are both!), birding, relaxing, bird-friendly coffee, conversation, and probably too many cider doughnuts.
We’re saying farewell to the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds this month…like we do to the autumn leaves. These photos were taken by Erin Talmage of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird male’s neck and back feathers, using different angles of light.
Economic Value of Avian Seed Dispersal in Critically Threatened Environments
