Introduction to Backyard Birding at the Library
On Thursday, October 25, at 6:00 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, the Pickering Creek Audubon Center will present a program on the joys of bird-watching from the comfort of your own home. Watching birds is a simple pleasure that can be enjoyed in any season. Birds that would normally fly off at the approach of an observer are less likely to be disturbed by someone watching from a window.

Observing the antics of birds at feeders is a treat that can also contribute to the advancement of science. Thousands of people across North America do just that by participating in Project FeederWatch, sponsored by Cornell University’s Ornithology Lab. According to Pickering Creek’s Samantha Pitts, their observations as citizen scientists result in “a treasure trove of numbers, which scientists analyze to draw a picture of winter bird abundance and distribution.” Join Pitts to learn more about Project FeederWatch, as well as ways to attract birds to your backyard and help them to thrive.

All library programs are free and open to the public. Patrons do not need to pre-register for this program. For more information, call the Pickering Creek Audubon Center at 410-822-4903.
