Feeding Winter Birds
9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sat. Jan 21
REGION – Birds can bring color to a wintry backyard and a smile to your face. The best part? Feeding birds is easy to do with a little knowledge, and we can help!
In this virtual DNR Outdoor Skills Academy class, learn which birds are likely to visit your backyard and which foods and feeders they prefer. We’ll also cover free birding resources and apps, how to clean your feeder and ways you can get involved in community science projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count.
Cost is $25. Each participant will receive a Peterson Field Guide to Feeder Birds and will be entered into a drawing for prizes inluding books and a bird feeder. The registration deadline is Jan. 19.
