Birds of Vermont Museum reviews
This place is a hidden gem in the state of Vermont! Well worth the effort to drive off the beaten path. The collection of carved birds, raptors, and owls from Vermont and the Lake Champlain region... more »
Not a birder, I still enjoyed this stop. It is amazing the time and skill devoted to each of the carvings. The volunteers are friendly and eager to answer questions. more »
A paradise for nature lovers! The Birds of Vermont Museum features a host of amazingly intricate and lifelike bird carvings completed over many years by Bob Spear whose dedication to conservation through education was obviously unfathomable. This fantastic resource offers a wealth of information about the avian population spending time in the Vermont region, realistic male and female representatives of most species, various bird and nature activities, as well as a woodland sanctuary of many acres available for those who wish to explore. Knowledgeable staff who love helping enthusiastic birders and novices alike round out the mix - it's definitely worth visiting regularly!
This is a smaller museum with countless hand-carved statues of the birds found in Vermont. Really well put together, very educational (and inspiring if you're into wood crafts), and all of the people who work and volunteer there are incredibly friendly! If you're around in May-June I recommend a Sunday morning bird watching walk!
