VERMONT’S FORESTS ARE HOME TO THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF BREEDING BIRD SPECIES IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. LOOKING CLOSELY AT OUR HILLS OF GREEN EACH SPRING AND SUMMER, ONE CAN SEE THE BRIGHT REDS, YELLOWS, AND BLUES OF THE TROPICS IN THE BIRDS THAT RETURN TO BREED IN OUR FORESTS. THESE NEOTROPICAL MIGRATORY BIRDS BREED HERE BECAUSE OF THE DIVERSITY OF FOREST TYPES AND CONDITIONS OUR GREEN MOUNTAINS HAVE TO OFFER. JIM SHALLOW, AUDUBON VERMONT’S DIRECTOR OF CONSERVATION AND POLICY WILL GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF THE BIRDS BREEDING HERE AND HOW EFFORTS TO PROMOTE A WORKING LANDSCAPE CAN HELP TO ASSURE THAT VERMONT REMAINS A WORLD-CLASS WARBLER NURSERY.
