SAVE the Birds! Wonderful Winter Birding At Your Backyard Feeders

Explore the fun and entertaining world of backyard bird feeding in late winter and get inspired to participate in the International Great Backyard Bird Count! You will learn not only about identifying backyard birds, but also about hatitat and feeding preferences of the birds that will come to your backyard feeders. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a great way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with nature and each other - across the globe. Birds have declined by more than 50% in the last 50 years. That means that 1 in 4 bird species have disappeared in North America since 1970! By observing birds you can help scientists understand how populations are faring in your region. We will discuss seven steps you can do to help birds. Equipment used for observation, feeders, types of bird appropriate food, preventing window collisions and thwarting squirrels and other hungry critters will be covered. We will also spend time talking about tricky bird ID's so you can know your sparrows - those little brown jobs - that are in serious decline - better.
