This is an amazing display of carvings of my favorite species. If you are wondering about a certain species, say, do they have an eye ring? Bob Spears carvings are better than any guide book ! I have recommended it many times.

We visited with friends who are bird watchers. We enjoyed watching the squirrels and birds thru the glass wall. Very realistic bird settings in the museum. Hard to believe that someone spent all those hours with a dremel like tool to get feathers look so realistic.

This was our second visit here. The first time we came was Spring of 2011 and we had just kind of stumbled upon it. We were so impressed that we came back again yesterday with our 6.5 and 2 yr old daughters. The Birds of Vermont Museum is an incredible place. The man who started the museum carved hundreds of...

We visited this museum several years ago. It was awesome! We were lucky enough to meet the master carver, Bob Spear, who was still taking daily walks/hikes. His work is beautiful. He passed away last year but his long term apprentice carries on. We returned for another visit recently. We aren't "birders" but the work is amazing and can be... More

My husband and I stumbled across this museum on one of the local area "attractions" maps. What a pleasant surprise! There are literally hundreds of intricately hand-carved wooden birds there. The downstairs part of the museum is set up with diaoramas depicting the birds' natural habitats. The upstairs part of the museum has a workshop where the carvings were made,... More

This small museum hidden in the woods offers a viewing window to watch birds, chipmunks, and a woodchuck come in for snacks. We saw bluejays, male and female evening grosbeaks, hairy woodpecker, ruby throated hummingbirds, mourning doves, and some sparrows. A daily list of visitors to the feeders or seen through the window is up on a white board. There... More

This bird museum is full of carved wooden Birds of VT in various settings as well as some rare birds - all done by one artist, Bob Spear, who recently passed away. They also have a viewing area with binoculars to watch birds in their natural habitat and a path that leads to a pond for more bird viewing.

My wife bird watches. I avoid avoid it. Birds fly off, hide and generally do not cooperate. This museum delighted both of us! Set your GPS for the address as the museum sits on an unpaved road. There is plenty of parking. The folks at the entrance are gracious and knowledgeable. A short video orients visitors to the artist who... More

A hidden wonderful place to take the family especially on a rainy day. A great way to study birds and their nests. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There are also trails leading from the museum where you can walk and often see many different species of birds. Inside the museum there is a huge window overlooking a large... More

This is a small museum that provides a quality visitation for both kids and adults, and it is a fun place. There are many beautiful wood carvings of birds, each showcased in well lighted, true to life mini habitats. There is also a new display on birds of the greater Champlain Valley that live and nest in Vermont, New York,... More
