Coastal Birding and Migration Thursday, May 10, 7–8:30 p.m. & Saturday, May 12, 6 a.m.–4 p.m. Montshire Museum of Science and the Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) are partnering to offer this two-part birding course. The course begins with a Thursday evening lecture about the expected bird sightings and coastal ecosystems. On Saturday, we depart from the Montshire on a field trip to Plum Island, Massachusetts, led by VCE researcher Kent McFarland. Plum Island is one of the best birding sites during the spring warbler migration. This is a great opportunity to spot some of the smallest and most colorful migrants, and to observe shorebirds, including the endangered Piping Plover. Transportation from the Montshire to Plum Island is provided. Participants should be able to walk ½ mile on uneven ground. Minimum enrollment 10, maximum 15.
