Watch Wildlife

What to Watch...

Early November is usually the peak of the snow goose migration at Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison.  The geese show up by the thousands to stop over on their way south from the arctic, peaking in late October.  Look for them at dawn and dusk as they fly from the open water to the local corn fields and back.  Bull moose and buck deer are in full antlers and ready for their photo shoot.  Some of our winter birds may start showing up in November such as redpolls, snow buntings, or snowy owls. 

Vermont abounds in wildlife. With a little preparation, some caution, and luck you can witness the state’s natural abundance.

Every season in Vermont has its own wildlife-watching opportunities. Perhaps you enjoy seeing tracks in the snow, hearing birds in the spring or chorus frogs around a vernal pool, summer brings migrant shore birds, and autumn visits of white-tail deer?
