ADDISON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department staff will provide a talk and field trip next month on winter birds.

The event takes place Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area.

Wildlife biologist John Buck will give a presentation in the conference room from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. After the talk he and department staff will lead a field trip to look for birds.

Buck says while the forest and fields of Vermont may be a little quieter in winter, there are still many great birding opportunities.

He says the group will look for birds such as snow buntings or rough legged hawks and may even get a glimpse of a snowy owl.

Admission is free and limited to the first 25 people who sign up.
