Spring bird walk on tap in Orwell this Saturday

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. 
Many birds fly through the Lake Champlain corridor on their way to their summer homes. Participants might see anything from the smallest birds to a majestic bald eagle. Every year the group tries to spot and add a new species to the list of birds seen on Mount Independence.
Walkers should wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather and leave pets at home.
The group will meet in front of the Mount Independence museum. The fee is $5 for adults and free for children under 15, and includes a museum visit after the walk. The site opens for the season on Saturday, May 28, and will be open daily 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Oct. 10.
