Do you ever wonder about the birds in your backyard? Now you can get acquainted with many of our local, common backyard birds when Naturalist Christa Wood, from the Somerset County Park Commission, speaks at Bernardsville Public Library on Wednesday, January 21 at 7:00 pm.
During this program, listeners will learn the essentials of backyard bird watching, basic identification skills, what to feed backyard birds, as well as when and where to place feeders in their yards. Armed with this information, they will then be able to participate in the annual Backyard Bird Count, an international Citizen Science project, which will be held February 13-16, 2015. Ms. Wood will explain how to join in this count.
There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
