As we are spending more time close to home, many people have taken an interest in bird watching in their own backyards and neighborhoods. If you are new to bird watching, perhaps you are having trouble identifying just what birds are visiting your feeders. During this hour-long presentation by a Mohonk Preserve educator, you will get a few tips and tricks to identifying our feathered friends visiting the feeders. Learn how to use apps for your smartphone to help you identify birds and contribute to citizen science from home. As our global and local climate changes, contributing to citizen science becomes more important to help scientists track shifting bird populations and migration patterns. Learn the best way to attract birds to your yard and when you should take down your feeders for the season. Begin your lifelong hobby of bird watching today!
