Topic this month

Male red-winged blackbirds are among the first wave of migratory birds to return to Vermont in the late winter/early spring. Curiously, the females arrive a few weeks. This month we’ll explore the natural history of red-winged blackbirds and the differences in behavior and appearance between the sexes. You can find the slides/videos from the presentation here.
