When the leaves fall and the forest appears more open, many of our winter birds are at their easiest to see. While many birds migrate south for the winter, southeast Missouri is alive with our year-round populations and visitors from the snowy north. Join us for a two-part program to learn the basics of spotting, and hearing, some of our more familiar winter birds. The program will begin with a presentation in the auditorium and then move to a roughly 1-mile hike over paved and gravel trails which are at times hilly. You are welcome to attend the auditorium portion only and then view birds from our feeder window or explore our forests on your own if you wish. This program is open to all ages, though the material is most appropriate for ages 10+ This program is just in time to prepare you for participating the in the Christmas Bird Count!
