Saturday, June 16, 2018, 7:30 – 9 a.m.
Join us as we look for and study the nesting birds of the Garden. We’ll spend time learning how to identify their territorial songs and how to perform a nesting bird survey. We will start out at the Barbara Brown Nature Reserve, which has good variety of nesting birds and is a place most visitors to the Garden do not normally visit. We will also check out nesting birds of the prairies, as well as herons, shorebirds, and waterfowl. Please dress for the weather, and bring binoculars and a field guide, if you have one. A map will be sent with your confirmation.
