***NEW LOCATION: This program will be held in THE JEWEL at the MAIN LIBRARY.***
Join us to learn all about winter bird watching and the ways your family can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count (one of the largest Citizen Science projects in the world) right in your own backyard and neighborhood!
Ryan MacLean, Bird Education Specialist at the Greenwich Audubon Center, will introduce you to some of the most common winter birds in our area and explain how you can count these birds this weekend and become part of the 'Citizen Science' team through the Bird network of Cornell University.
You will receive a color chart of common backyard birds and an intro on how to set up a free e-Bird account with the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology to keep track of birding records this weekend and from now on both at home and around the world.
