The Saturday, Feb. 1, session of Backyard Birding meets at the Dungeness River Audubon Center’s Railroad Bridge Park, is from 10 a.m.-noon.
Members learn about the care and maintenance of nests and nesting boxes. The class also will show how to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count, a national annual census of bird populations sponsored by both the Audubon Society and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
Following a short field trip to tally birds in Railroad Bridge Park, learn how to enter data in the Great Backyard Bird Count computer database.
