Outlines of birds in darkening sky
Please note: due to the Covid-19 crisis, the October, November, and December 2020 First Wednesdays talks will only be offered online, via Zoom. Advance registration is required for these events. Register to attend this free event.

Many of us are dazzled by autumn colors during the daytime. But we can be just as dazzled by the night moves of thousands of birds passing quietly overhead during their fall migration. Join “bird diva” Bridget Butler to discover this almost-silent world.

During the cool evenings, thousands of birds are passing almost unnoticed overhead as they begin their exodus to their wintering grounds. Bridget will share audio recordings of nocturnal flight calls of some of Vermont’s breeding birds and provide tips to increase your awareness of birds during fall migration this season.
