Birds can bring feathered fun—and free insect control—to a backyard garden. Join our friends and neighbors with Alice Ferguson Foundation, Naturalist Chris Ordiway as he introduces you to the backyard birds of Maryland. From red-breasted robins to cheerful bluebirds, participants will learn to identify several common birds of Maryland and discuss how to attract them with shelter, water, and food. Basic birding skills will also be taught. Weather permitting, participants will take a guided trail walk. Participants will receive a copy of Bill Fenimore’s Backyard Birds of Maryland and other take-home materials.
Pre-registration is required by Thursday, August 30, 2012.
