Bicknell's Thrush
Body: 

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.

Hawk Banding
Body: 

It’s not every day that a high school student has the opportunity to capture raptors for banding. But for Addison County kids that participate in the Diversified Occupation Program it’s a regular part of their science curriculum. The Diversified Occupation Program serves high school students with special academic and behavioral needs. The goal is for each student to graduate with a job in place and skills for independent living. For close to two decades special educator Rodney Olsen has used bird banding to engage students in science, the outdoors and the environment.

Eagle Point Wildlife Management Area
Body: 

In 2007, a stunning 458-acre parcel on Lake Memphremagog was donated to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service by the estate of Michael Dunn. Although it is technically part of the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, the property is managed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department as a wildlife management area. Located only 5 miles north of the City of Newport, the undeveloped shoreline is a welcome contrast to the southern end of the lake. In addition to the forested lakeshore habitat, the WMA includes two wetlands and several large meadows.

Described as a series of “parallel monologues” that explore both forms without fusing them, India Jazz Suites is a blast of incredible speed and power, grace and beauty, epic storytelling and the pure joy of dance.
