Mad Birder Spring Walks this Thursday and Sunday mornings!

Posted on Tuesday 20 May 2008

Join dawna Foreman this coming Thursday at 7:30am for a Freeman Hill Bird Walk in Moretown. Freeman Hill Road is on the left after you pass Maynard’s Snack Bar heading north on Route 100B from Waitsfield. dawna’s is the first house on the left as you head up Freeman Hill Road. Loaner binoculars are available for new birders. Lots of great birds have been regularly spotted on Freeman Hill, including a couple of Great Crested Flycatchers this week. They have a lemon yellow breast and a wonderful call that sounds like they are saying a very loud VREEEEEP!!! So come join dawna for a walk this Thursday the 22nd and see what you can see.

Also this week Jeannie Elias is leading a walk on Sunday at 7:30am on Center Fayston Road. Meet at Shaw’s at 7:30 or call Jeannie for directions to her home at 496-4730. Veterans of previous Center Fayston Road walks with Jeannie will be relieved that the mud bog trail has been ditched in favor of open fields, easily accessible brooks and ponds and roadsides. Recent birds seen in these environs include Black Throated Green Warblers, Black Throated Blue Warblers, Magnolia Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Chestnut Sided Warblers, Least Flycatchers, Northern Flickers, Tree Swallows and Rose Breasted Grosbeaks.
