Birding 101 draws enthusiastic group preparing for GBBC
'Bird watching is an activity that young and old can participate in and Adair County is an exceptional location for sighting a large variety of birds' -Barbara Armitage
By Barbara Armitage
Birding News from Adair County Garden Club
If a flock of Cardinals is a Vatican and a group of Finches is a Charm what would you call an assembly of Bird Watchers? Well on Saturday you could call them enthusiastic people attending Birding 101.
Birding 101 is an introduction to the hobby of bird watching as well as an overview of the Great Backyard Bird Count coming February 18, 19, 20, and 21, 2011. This year's class is better than ever, the handouts alone are worth coming for.
Bird watching is an activity that young and old can participate in and Adair County is an exceptional location for sighting a large variety of birds. Attendees learned how to attract and identify many of the birds who call this home and how to participate in the fun of this year's GBBC.
It's not too late - if you'd like to learn more about attracting and identifying birds, join life-long bird watching enthusiast Wendy Burt and bird feeder extraordinaire Barbara Armitage for Birding 101 and learn to attract and identify the most commonly seen birds in Adair County.
This class has been specifically designed to help birdwatchers of all ages become experts in identifying our fellow feathered Adair Countians. Don't waste bird food and money - learn how to "feed to attract" your favorite birds then put your new found knowledge to work and be a part of the Great Backyard Bird Count.
If you'd like to learn more about feeding and identifying the birds attend one of the Adair County Garden Club's Birding 101 classes. Two more classes are being offered this year for your convenience. Birding 101 classes will be held at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, KY:
Learn, have fun, be a part of the world's largest scientific experiment. This free class is brought to you by the Adair County Garden Club and is open to bird lovers of all ages.
