Winter Birding Basics

Winter is a wonderful time to observe many different types of birds. Some are only here for the winter, and most make use of the park bird feeders, which means you can observe them from the warmth of the indoors! Learn a little about identifying birds and which ones to look for this time of year. This program is intended for beginners.
