Backyard Birding series continues in December

Hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, the 10-class Backyard Birding series continues in December with an event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.

The series offers interested local residents information about observing and protecting wild bird life in our region.

The Dec. 7 event, the third in the Backyard Birding series will be the popular “Winter Care and Feeding in the Garden,” presented by Christie Lassen of Wild Birds Unlimited in Gardiner.

Lassen will describe general bird feeding methods, including types of feeders and various feeds designed to attract specific bird species — particularly those species wintering over in our region.

Lassen will also describe clean feeding and watering techniques to promote healthy, thriving bird populations while discouraging unwelcome rodents. She will address specific needs of the Anna’s Hummingbird species that has started making the Pacific Northwest home throughout the year.

Backyard Birding can be taken either as individual classes or in a series. The cost of each session is $5. Admission is free for anyone under 18.

For participants completing five sessions in the series, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society offers a free one-year membership.
