The next “Backyard Birding” class examines “Bird Nesting” from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Feb. 3, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, 2151 W Hendrickson Road.
Ken Wiersema leads the presentation offering examples of the nests of many different species. Attendees learn where and how local birds nest and how nesting is an integral part of pair bonding.
The program also has a “how-to” walk through on how bird watchers of every age and skill can be part of the Great Backyard Bird Count (Feb. 16-19).
Hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, this series of classes is intended for residents of this area interested in knowing more about wild birds and learning how to develop good habitats for them. Presented from 10 a.m. noon on Saturdays, “Backyard Birding” can be taken either as an individual class or as a series.
Tuition for each session is $5, or free for anyone younger than 18.
Upon completion of five sessions, participants are offered free membership in the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society for one year.
