Vermont is home to dozens of migratory birds but none are as secretive and seldom seen as the Bicknell's Thrush. These birds depend on thick, high elevation balsam fir forests during their spring breeding season and are heard more often than seen. With an estimated 100,000 individual birds or less the Bicknell’s Thrush is a species of high conservation concern. Thanks to ongoing banding efforts over the last decade, researchers are discovering some of the secrets of these elusive frequent fliers.
