ORWELL — The birds of spring are the focus of the annual Early Bird Nature Walk on Saturday, May 28, at 8 a.m., at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell. Bird expert Sue Wetmore of Brandon leads the walk to help birders find and identify these birds.

BRANDON — For more than half of Friday’s home game vs. Division I power Mount Anthony, the D-II Otter Valley softball team more than held its own.
