Binos and Bird Feeders: Winter Backyard Birds
Sunday, February 16, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Holderness, NH – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center holds a winter backyard bird program for adults and families with children ages 5 and up. What birds overwinter in New Hampshire? How do they survive? Gather around the Science Center’s bird feeders and learn to identify backyard birds. Participants can even try letting the birds eat out of their hand! We will discuss bird feeding basics, make a bird feeder from natural or recycled materials to take home, go on a walk to identify birds in the field and forest using binoculars, and finish up by meeting a bird some may consider an uninvited guest at bird feeders. Binoculars and snowshoes will be provided or you may bring your own. Dress to be outside with insulated snow boots and warm layers.
Cost: $9/member; $11/non-member
