Birding 101: The Series
Not all birds fly south for the winter. There’s a diverse community of birds to be found in our backyards. Spend the winter with us fine-tuning your bird watching, feeding, and habitat building skills. Each month we will offer basics on bird identification as well as more specific information about attracting birds to your yard. These classes are geared towards beginners but all levels are welcome. Program is held indoors and weather permitting, we’ll take a short walk around the grounds. Members $7/class, Non-members $10/class. Pre-registration required.
Birding 101: Bird Nesting Boxes This program has been cancelled.
Sunday, March 29
1:30 -2:30 p.m.
What do bluebirds, tree swallows, chickadees, and woodpeckers have in common? They’re cavity nesters. Our teacher/naturalists will share tips on how to build or buy suitable nesting boxes for a variety of species, the proper placement of nesting boxes in your yard, and how to attract birds and discourage predators to these new locations. It’s never too early to plan for nesting season and some of your most important neighbors.
