Wildlife Watch: Banding birds on Mt. Mansfield

Posted: Updated:

Birds that live in our mountain top ecosystems are at risk...and the problem extends far beyond Vermont. Tiny songbirds like the Bicknell's thrush make the journey from Mt Mansfield to places like Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

These birds could be in trouble if their homes on both sides aren't protected.. The Vermont Center for Ecostudies is banding birds on the summit of Mt Mansfield to collect information about their habitats. WCAX photographer Darin Boutet went to the summit to see how it works.  Watch the video for more.
