More than 800 Eastern Meadowlark observations were logged to eBird by over 250 reporters between May and July throughout Vermont.

Based on those reports, it appears that the population is almost entirely within the Champlain Valley and Bennington County. A preliminary look at the observations from this summer suggests there are at least 40 sites (hosting around 100 individual breeding adults) that may potentially host breeding EAME. Two previously unreported sites were recorded outside of the Champlain Valley by EAME Blitz volunteers in Richford and Danville.
