Coming in Spring 2024.

Thanks for your patience as we rebuild our website! Due to Covid, the Festival is now scheduled for the spring of 2024 when we hope everyone will be able to travel and gather again safely.

Stay tuned for a remote schedule of smaller but very exciting virtual and in-person programs beginning in January 2023. More soon! 

If you are interested in updates and announcements, please sign up for our emails. Thanks, stay safe, and good birding!

Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus)

Bobolinks are a species in decline. In Vermont, the bobolink population declined by 75 percent between 1966 and 2007.

They are birds of tallgrass prairie but New England grasslands and hayfields work, too. But fields harvested too early may not prevent young birds from fledging or crush nests and eggs. Delaying hay harvests by just a week or two can improve bobolink survival.

You can learn more or get involved at The Bobolink Project.
