Birds of Vermont Museum

900 Sherman Hollow Road

The mission of the Birds of Vermont Museum is to educate children and adults about the environment through the study of birds and their habitats.

The Birds of Vermont Museum is a delightful place where visitors can learn about birds and their role in the earth's ecosystem. A private, non-profit organization, the Museum features over 470 carved birds representing 258 species. The woodcarvings depict Vermont's nesting species in their natural habitats as well as North America's endangered and extinct species. The Museum's displays, the surrounding 100 acre bird sanctuary/nature preserve, and the bird viewing window offer visitors a unique opportunity to see and study birds that will not fly away! The birds have been carved by one man, Robert Spear, Jr., a native Vermonter, who is one of Vermont's foremost naturalists and woodcarvers. Picnic tables are available at the Museum and at a near-by pond. Over 5000 adults and children visited the Museum in 2005. Audubon Vermont is located adjacent to the Museum.

Amazing! Part wildlife experience part art museum. This place is great for people who love birds and also for people who don't. The wooden carvings are intricate and well done and super interesting to look at. The bird calls were fun to go through and see which ones I could recognize. They also have hiking trails and extremely helpful staff who is attentive and patient. Loved it here.

Awesome place to visit if you are a birdwatcher and also if you are not. I brought my wife and in laws, they really liked the place. There was a lot of activity at the feeder and I managed to photograph a hummingbird that was making circles around the museum!
