Winter Finches and Irruptions

Redpoll (smallbrown and white bird with reddish patch on forehead, type of , finch) perches on a snowy spruce branchlet.

It is an irruptive year! What does that mean? Which Vermont birds are irruptive?

We’ll start with finches, but don’t be surprised if we branch out to waxwings, owls… Bring your questions! We’ll follow up the presentation with a semi-guided finch-specific tour of the museum.

Recommended for adults of all ages, and older children.

A suggested donation of $20 includes museum admission; please pay what you are comfortable with.
