Ahhh, the birds of summer! Who are they, where are they, and what are they up to during the summer? Join Bird Diva, Bridget Butler, for an evening talk about birding during the summer months. We’ll take a look at interesting behaviors, family dynamics and drama, and the transition into fall. This presentation features images from Vermont bird photographers and stories from Bridget’s birding adventures in her backyard and beyond.

Bridget Butler, aka The Bird Diva, has been working in conservation and environmental education for more than 20 years throughout New England. Her business Bird Diva Consulting has her travelling across Vermont delivering presentations, leading bird walks, and surveying birds for landowners. Bridget has worked for the Audubon Society in Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and helped to created Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Initiative. You may have seen her on WPTZ or WCAX talking about birds and conservation or heard her on Vermont Public Radio’s annual bird show on “Vermont Edition.” As the Bird Diva, she feels it important that birders use their passion for birds to make a difference by helping to protect habitat for birds and other wildlife. Bridget lives in St. Albans with her husband and three young children who she’s grooming to be the next stewards of this wild world we live in!
