Residents of the Upper Valley are privileged to live in one of the richest bird nesting areas in North America. From the peregrine falcons that nest on our Palisades to the tiny warblers that fly thousands of miles from South America each spring, these birds come to our yards, fields, and forests because the climate is right, there is a variety of habitat types, and they can find ample food for their young. But what about us, the people who live here? How do our activities impact the success or failure of their breeding season. How can we be better neighbors and stewards?

Steve Hagenbuch has worked with Audubon in a variety of roles since 1998. Currently he is a conservation biologist with Audubon Vermont’s Forest Bird Initiative. In this position Steve works with private landowners, municipalities, foresters, and land managers to promote management activities that will enhance the habitat value of forestland for priority bird species. He has done extensive work in Fairlee Town Forest and surrounding private lands.

Margaret Fowle is a conservation biologist with Audubon Vermont’s Peregrine Falcon Recovery Program and Champlain Valley Bird Initiative. Prior to coming to Audubon in 2009, Margaret coordinated peregrine and bald eagle recovery efforts in Vermont. Margaret also works with private landowners to promote management activities that enhance grassland and shrubland habitats for priority bird species in the Champlain Valley.
