Return of the Red-winged Blackbird
February 11, 2020
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.
Do I need to register?
Nope. The lectures are open to the public (with a suggested donation of $5-15). Free to Patreon members. While you don’t need to register, an RSVP helps us plan for the event.
Where and when does it meet?
Lectures will begin in January 2020. They’re scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month, from 7-8pm! Street parking is available on Allen St. There’s also a parking lot on North Ave between Murray and Elmwood.
Who is this for?
The program is geared towards adults. All naturalists, novice and expert alike, are welcome! Kids can join as well, but should be accompanied by an adult.
