Bryan Pfeiffer hosts a new Vermont DVD called "Birding in Vermont" a year long bird- watching tour, produced by Vermont Public Television . Pfeiffer's enthusiasm for birding is contagious. From the more common birds, Chickadees and Snow Geese to the unusual Bicknell's Thrushes, Pfeiffer explains where birds can be found, how to identify them and why birders can get competitive. He talks about the equipment a birder needs and field guides to use, but he also takes the viewer to some of the special places in Vermont where birds can be found. The scenery is often just as interesting as the birds Pfeiffer is tracking. From Otter Creek and Dead Creek to Herricks Cove and Moose Bog, Pfeiffer travels through out the state in all of Vermont's seasons. This 54 minute DVD can be watched by the entire family. It will give everyone a new appreciation for some of the 300 species of birds that live in Vermont during a year.
