Poem: The feeders are hung on shepherd hooks

The feeders are hung on shepherd hooks
by Maury Lewis, member, Adair County Garden Club and charter counter in the Adair County GBBC
The feeders have been hung on the shepherd hooks
The Garden Club suet balls hung, according to the book
We have our field guide in our hand
Our binocular so we can see across the land
We must go to classes, Birding 101
To learn how to count, it all sounds like fun
The reason for the count is really scientific
What birds are where, we must be specific
We must let them know how many birds are here We could use your help in the Count this year.
If you'd like to learn more about feeding and identifying the birds attend one of the ACGC's Birding 101 classes.

Three classes are being offered this year for your convenience. Birding 101 classes will be held at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street (MAP), Columbia, KY:
  • Saturday January 29, 2011, at 10amCT
  • Saturday February 5, 2011, 10amCT
  • Friday February 11, 2011, at 6:30pmCT
Please be on time because we have a lot of good information to pass out and tell you about.The GBBC (Great Backyard Bird Count) is February 18, 19, 20, 21, 2011. -Maury Lewis
