After the busy holiday season and Christmas Bird Count, we can slow down and pay attention to individual birds in their environment and their place in it. More than numbers on a list, we can come away with memorable insights and more understanding. Here’s a note from our hostess:

“Hey there, I’m Bridget Butler. I’ve been a naturalist for more than 20 years, playing match maker for the wildscape & the wonderful people who call Vermont their home.

MY Approach

My approach to birding is to tap into each person’s innate passion for nature through exploration and deep listening. I strive then to encourage folks to take that passion and turn it into action, paying it forward for the landscape they love & enjoy. Here’s a note from one of my students:

‘Your welcoming manner is the reason I have felt like I can “be a birder”. You have made me feel like it is okay to talk about what I am noticing about birds and not be perfect about it. It’s not about the answers, it’s about the questions. Just noticing and wondering is enough – and that freedom makes the topic accessible for me.’
