Backyard Bird Class
You're invited to attend a free spring bird class and learn to identify year-round residents arriving in our yards and parks.

Spring brings thousands of migrating birds to our region; some stay to nest and others pass through. Get ready for great spring birding action with this crash course in identifying spring migrants and summer breeders.

Metro naturalist James Davis will show slides, play some easy bird songs and simplify what seems like a confusing variety of birds to many beginners.
