All 'early birds' are welcome to join either of the two guided birding events that will be sponsored by NEK Audubon around the Northeast Kingdom on Sunday, May 24, 2015.
1. HOT SPOTS! 5am to midday.
"This is a peak time for seeing birds in our corner of Vermont," said NEK Audubon's chapter President, Tom Berriman of Lyndonville, "now that the incoming migration is peaking." Starting from the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury at 5am, Tom's group will carpool the birding 'hot spots' around Lake Memphremagog, the Coventry marshes, and the Conte refuge in Ferdinand, including Moose Bog.
2. YOUTH BIRDING AROUND JOE'S POND 8am - 10am.
At 8am, a second guided walk for youthful birders and their families will be led by NEK Audubon Board member, Danville's Jim Ashley, around the rich bird habitat of Joe's Pond. Meet up point is Channel Drive. Contact Jim (684-3496) for details and directions.
