Bird Conservation: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally
With Steve Hagenbuch and Margaret Fowle of Audubon Vermont
Residents of the Upper Valley are privileged to live in one of the richest bird nesting areas in North America. From the peregrine falcons that nest on our Palisades to the tiny warblers that fly thousands of miles from South America each spring, these birds come to our yards, fields, and forests because the climate is right, there is a variety of habitat types, and they can find ample food for their young. But what about us, the people who live here? How do our activities impact the success or failure of their breeding season. How can we be better neighbors and stewards?
