Wednesday, January 27, 7PM, Webinar:  Deciphering
Winter Bird Behavior with Pickering Creek Audubon Center, Free
Ever wonder how overwintering birds survive the cold?
Though we’re all familiar with the sight of Canada Geese
and other species flying south for the winter in search
of more resources, other residential species find ways
to stick it out locally. Some have physical adaptations
to help them beat the cold, while others change their
behaviors. Join us to find out more, and to learn
what you can do to help birds all winter long.
