The Birds of Vermont Museum is a delightful place where visitors can learn about birds and their role in the earth’s ecosystem.
A private, non-profit organization, the Museum features over 470 carved birds representing 258 species. The woodcarvings depict Vermont’s nesting species in their natural habitats as well as North America’s endangered and extinct species. The Museum’s displays, the surrounding 100 acre bird sanctuary/nature preserve, and the bird viewing window offer visitors a unique opportunity to see and study birds that will not fly away! The birds have been carved by one man, Robert Spear, Jr., a native Vermonter, who is one of Vermont’s foremost naturalists and woodcarvers. Picnic tables are available at the Museum and at a near-by pond. Over 5000 adults and children visited the Museum in 2005. Audubon Vermont is located adjacent to the Museum.
