The Birds of Vermont Museum is always a pleasant surprise for its first-time visitors, with its expansive collection of life-size wood carvings of birds. These carvings represent over two hundred species and are biologically accurate as well. In 2011, the museum celebrated the 500th addition to its wooden bird carving collection. The carvings also depict the birds? natural habitats and include extinct and endangered species of North America as well.

The museum?s original collection of wood carvings was made by pioneering Vermont woodcarver and naturalist Robert Spear, Jr. Another Vermont local, artist Libby Davidson, is responsible for the museum?s spring and fall migration dioramas.

Guests may also picnic at the surrounding one-hundred-acre grounds of the museum, which serves as a nature preserve and bird sanctuary.
