Day 1 – Wed., April 25, 6-8 pm. Did you know that about one third of North America’s birds use wetlands for nesting, feeding, or shelter? Late April in Minnesota is still early spring, but a fair number of our breeding birds will have arrived by this time and many will be hard at work establishing territories and building nests in wetlands and or open fields. What gives these birds the ability to get and earlier start? We’ll take a look at who these early birds are, learn some identification skills by sight and sound, and learn about strategies for nest building lower to the ground.
Day 2 – Sat. April 28th Field Trip (7:30-10 am at Mud Lake Area *directions will be provided at class session)
Plan for walking a trail that is mostly inactive railroad track to search for sparrows, wrens, and other feathered friends of fields and wetlands.
This program is part of the Spring Birding Program Series.
