Saturday, February 17th | 8am - 9:30am | Ages 12+ |Stage Nature Center, Troy, MI

It's mid-winter and a great time to dust off your binoculars and dig out the field guides! We'll have coffee and pastries while we watch the activity at our wildlife feeders and discuss feathered topics such as backyard feeding, migration and more. Then we'll head outdoors to look for winter birds including woodpeckers, nuthatches and finches. This is also the perfect time to hone your bird ID skills as we count birds to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count, a global citizen-science event. Both novice and seasoned birders are welcome! Binoculars and field guides will be available for use during the program or you can bring your own. Children should be accompanied by a registered adult.

Ages: 12 - Adult | Fee:  $7 | TNS Members: $5
