Birding IN VERMONT'S MAD RIVER VALLEY

Birding

The fields, meadows, ridge tops and hillsides of the Mad River Valley provide excellent habitat for Northern Forest bird species including Bicknell’s Thrush , Scarlet Tanager and Black-throated Blue Warbler. Local birding enthusiasts lead walks all year and welcome you to join them! Contact the Chamber of Commerce for details. The spring migration welcomes the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Common Yellowthroat, Indigo Bunting, and Meadowlark back to our Valley. Take a short ride to Vermont’s Green Mountain Audubon Center in nearby Huntington featuring 5 miles of birding trails, a butterfly garden, and a sensory trail. Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) North Branch in Montpelier is celebrating 10 years with 10 free bird walks in Central Vermont this spring.
