Vermont eBird is the hub for all bird-related data, a place for birders to record their observations for use by scientists and the birding community.   eBird is a “vast and powerful database co-sponsored by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon,” and the Vermont section is sponsored by an ecological hall of fame team that includes the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, North Branch Nature Center, Birds of Vermont Museum, Vermont Audubon, and VINS.  Don’t miss the Resources list, which includes links to the BirdsEye phone app and eBird Rare Bird Google Gadget.  Who knew?
