Event: Backyard Birds – Bird Nesting


With spring on the horizon, we offer a favorite program on bird nesting.  We’ll show attendees where and how local birds nest; and, how nesting is an integral part of pair bonding.  Ken Wiersema will lead the presentation offering examples of the nests of many different species. The program also has a “how to” walk through on how bird watchers of every age and skill can be part of the Great Backyard Bird Count on Feb 16-19 2018.


This series of classes is hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS).  It is intended for residents of this area who are interested in knowing more about wild birds seen locally each season of the year; and, learning how to develop good habitats for them.  The series is presented Saturdays from 10-12noon at the Dungeness River Audubon Center.  “Backyard Birding” can be taken either as an individual class or as a series.  The tuition for each session is $5 and is free for anyone under 18. Upon completion of five sessions, participants will be offered free membership in OPAS for one year.
