Monthly group invites public to bird watch and get exercise at West Rutland marsh walk

Saturday, Jan. 28 at 8 a.m.—WEST RUTLAND—Join the Rutland County Audubon Society for its monthly bird monitoring walk to the West Rutland marsh on Saturday, Jan. 28.
To date 151 species, from least bittern to northern shrike, have been recorded at this important bird area (IBA). Join for the 3.7 mile loop around the marsh (dirt and paved roads) or go halfway. New birders, children and non-members are welcome.
Dress for the weather. A few pair of binoculars are available to those that may not have their own.
Meet and learn from some friendly bird experts and learn why birding is such fun (and important to wildlife conservation science).
