FREE Free but donations appreciated

Event description: 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 (or nectar) to use, and where to place feeders. The program will end with a short walk in the Larsen Sanctuary (weather permitting). Bring your binoculars, note pad and field guides. Identification books are also available in the Nature Store. Register in advance by calling ext. 109.
