GREENSBORO — As spring brings the return of songbirds, the Greensboro Conservation Commission and Greensboro Free Library are co-sponsoring three Sunday morning bird walks led by expert local birders. The library has two pairs of binoculars available for loan, with additional pairs potentially available for each walk.

The first walk was guided by John Schweizer of Vermont Audubon on Sunday. Participants progressed along Church Lane, Lazy Lane, and High Pines, searching for birds in the woods next to Caspian Lake. Last year’s walk along this path resulted in the identification of nearly 30 bird species.

The second walk, led by Chris Steel, will meet at 7 a.m. at Highland Lodge on Sunday, May 26, and progress along Bathtub Rock Road and Porter Brook.

The third and final walk, guided by Joann Hanowski of Vermont Audubon, will explore the private Bear Glen Trails. The group will meet at 7 a.m. at the end of Collier Road (off Rocking Rock Road) on Sunday, June 2.

All bird walks are free and open to everyone.

Later this summer, the Greensboro Conservation Commission is planning a Birds Day at the Highland Center for the Arts on Saturday, August 17, featuring a raptor’s visit from VINS (Vermont Institute of Natural Science) and a talk by Bridget Butler (The Vermont Bird Diva).
