Event: Backyard Birds – The Inside Story


Jan 6th, 2018 — 10 am to noon. —  Backyard Birds — The Inside Story

To start the new year, Shirley Anderson and Ken Wiersema will lead a discussion of the biology and physical features of birds — how they eat, digest, breath, sing, reproduce, and fly.  This session will include the showing of a collection of bird skeletons, feathers, feet, new illustrations, graphics, and sounds.  It will enhance  your enjoyment and understanding of birds in our local area.  Please join us; bring your observations and questions.

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.
