Hear the inside story at next Backyard Birding session

To start the new year, Shirley Anderson and Ken Wiersema will lead “Backyard Birds: The Inside Story,” a discussion of the biology and physical features of birds — how they eat, digest, breath, sing, reproduce and fly — at the next Backyard Birding session, set for 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Jan. 6, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center.

This session will include the showing of a collection of bird skeletons, feathers, feet, new illustrations, graphics and sounds. The presentation is designed to enhance enjoyment and understanding of birds in our local area; attendees are encouraged to bring observations and questions.

Hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, this series is intended for residents of this area who are interested in knowing more about wild birds seen locally each season of the year and learning how to develop good habitats for them.

The series is presented Saturdays at the Dungeness River Audubon Center,2151 W. Hendrickson Road.

Backyard Birding can be taken either as an individual class or as a series. Tuition for each session is $5 and is free for anyone younger than 18. Upon completion of five sessions, participants will be offered free membership in OPAS for one year.
