While traveling with my wife’s family we came across The Birds Of Vermont Museum. The museum was closed but we soon came across Bob Spear, the museum’s founder, coming back from a hike in the nearby woods.
Mr. Spear kindly offered to open the museum for us and we were very happy not to have missed seeing the fruits of his 25+ years of bird carving.
At 90 Bob Spear is still carving away. He also has an apprentice who is helping him complete this massive collection of bird carvings.
Go there if you can!
You can also view some of the museum on-line and watch live birds at the feeder on the bird-cam by going to the museum’s website:
