Add to Calendar 14-12-2013 14-12-2013 15 Backyard Birding with Dick Worth Wish you could identify birds? Have you ever heard an unusual bird call and wondered what species was singing? Or seen a bird on the wing and tried to identify it by its flight pattern? Did you know that the tiny yellow goldfinch is around all winter? Join long-time birder and naturalist Richard Worth who will teach you how to identify Connecticut's birds by sight and sound. Backyard birding begins at the feeder, so you'll also learn who is at the feeder at this time of year, their feeding habits, and their characteristics. Worth will discuss ways to attract birds to your feeder, what birdseed to use, and where to place feeders. The program is for adults and children ages 12 and up. Meet in the Connecticut Audubon Society's Center at Fairfield's Nature Store. Bring your binoculars, note pad and field guides. Weather permitting; there will be a walk in the sanctuary. Identification books are also available in the Nature Store. Register in advance by calling 203-259-6305 ext. 109. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=150706 Connecticut Audubon Society true DD/MM/YYYY
