April Birding Events in Central Vermont

After a morning of 4 degrees and a forecast of a foot or more of snow, it is encouraging to see calendars of birding events popping up on local web sites.  I took three local groups and put their outings on a Google Calendar which you can visit here.

The North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier has a wonderful series of bird walks that are free to members ($25 single/$50 family) or for $10 for non-members.  Led by expert birders, they are low key and popular with skilled birders and beginners.  They are on Fridays and Saturdays in April/May.

The MadBirders club in the Mad River Valley is a collection of avid birders who have a great schedule of events, ranging from the Valley floor to the top of Mount Ellen.  The dues are only $15 a year for individuals/$20 for families, and they welcome newcomers.

Over in Huntington is the Birds of Vermont Museum, a must-see venue for any birder.  They have a bird monitoring walk on their property the last Saturday of each month.  The event is free but they ask that you pre-register by emailing museum@birdsofvermont.org or calling (802) 434-2167.

Are there other bird walks in April in Central Vermont that I’ve missed?  Mention them in the comment section and I’ll add them to the calendar.  Good birding.

  1. Thank you so much for the mention!

    You should be able to subscribe/add/embed our calendar with yours if you ever want to. It’s at http://www.birdsofvermont.org/events.php (there’s a google link, just like yours).
