Learn about summer birds at July 25 talk

SALISBURY — Ahhh, the birds of summer. Who are they, where are they and what are they up to during the summer? Join Bird Diva Bridget Butler for an evening talking about birding during the summer months on Wednesday, July 25, at 7 p.m. at the Salisbury Congregational Church.
Participants will take a look at interesting behaviors, family dynamics and drama, and the transition into fall. The talk will feature some photos from Vermont bird photographers and stories from Butler’s birding adventures in her backyard and beyond.
Butler has been working in conservation and environmental education throughout New England for more than 20 years. Her business Bird Diva Consulting has her traveling across Vermont delivering presentations, leading bird walks, and surveying birds for landowners. Butler has worked for the Audubon Society in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and helped to create Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Initiative.
Many may have seen her on Vermont news stations talking about birds and conservation or heard her on Vermont Public Radio’s annual bird show on Vermont Edition. Butler surveys grassland birds for VT Fish & Wildlife and woodcock for U.S. Fish & Wildlife, and she oversees a roadkill project called WildPaths for Cold Hollow to Canada.
As the Bird Diva, she feels it important that birders use their passion for birds to make a difference by helping to protect habitat for birds and other wildlife. Butler lives in St. Albans with her husband and three young children whom she’s grooming to be the next stewards of this wild world we live in.
Brought to you by the Salisbury Historical Society, the Lake Dunmore/Fern Lake Association, and the Salisbury Conservation Commission Presented, the presentation is free and open to the public.
