Beginner Bird ID Class -- Saturday, November 17 at 1 p.m.
Are you new to bird feeding or watching, or do you just want to know what birds are fluttering about the trees on your street this time of year? Wild Birds Unlimited's Andrew Walker will help you identify the local birds that you see every day, including house finches, goldfinches, hummingbirds, jays, warblers, juncos, wrens, towhees, and more. Class will last about 30 minutes with time for questions.
Best of all, it's free!
This month Andrew will be talking about the beautiful American Goldfinches, which will be returning to our area. These brilliant yellow birds love to cluster around feeders to get their favorite food: nyger (thistle) seeds. Hang up a feeder full of nyger (designed especially to feed goldfinches and available at Wild Birds unlimited) and watch as four or five of the little birds crowd around to pluck the tiny black morsels enthusiastically from the feeder.
See you in the store!
