Naturalist 101: Birding
Welcome Spring! Welcome back the birds from their migration back north after winter has ended.
Beautiful spring has finally arrived! That means we get to wake up in the morning to the magical and musical sounds of our feathered friends that have returned home to enjoy the warmer weather with us. What better way to kick off Spring than to learn the basics of birding?!
Can you recognize the difference between the call of a black-capped chickadee from a robin? Can you find the spots that cardinals like to hang out? How high up in the trees do scarlet tanager’s like to perch?
The Pfeiffer Nature Center is hosting an introduction on how to obseve, identify, and create a bird-friendly habitant. You can also receive instruction on which birds are migratory and which are year-round. Help in how to choose the right binoculars will also be provided. Cost is $7 per person.
