“Birds — The Inside Story,” third in the series of Backyard Birding classes, will be from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Jan. 10, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, Railroad Bridge Park.
Jaye Moore, director of the Northwest Raptor and Wildlife Center, will bring live birds to help illustrate a discussion about the unique anatomy, physiology and behaviors of birds lead by Shirley Anderson and Ken Wiersema.
The series of classes, hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, is intended for residents of this area who are interested in knowing more about birds seen locally each season of the year and learning how to develop good habitats for wild birds.
Backyard Birding can be taken either as individual classes or in a series. The cost of each session is $5 and is free for anyone under 18. After the completion of five sessions, participants will be offered free membership in OPAS for one year.
Look forward to five more classes. “Bird Nesting,“ from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Feb. 7, is the first class in 2015. OPAS leader Ken Wiersema will give a talk on the care and maintenance of nest and nesting boxes. Save March 7 for “Spring Gardening for Birds”; April 18 on “Bird Migration”; May 16 “Enjoying Spring Sounds” and finally June 6 for “Out of the Nest.”
