    Calling all bird lovers! When a bird sings, it tells you what it is and where it is. Increase your chances of successfully sighting and identifying songbirds “by ear” this spring using Holly’s intriguing strategies. Learn how, why, and when birds sing, and come away with foundational skills for understanding and learning the language of the birds right outside your own doors. Dress for the weather, bring your binoculars (some will be provided), and wear practical shoes for walking over uneven paths. Pace will be slow and accommodate most mobility levels.


    This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, April 27, 2024 from 8:00 am - 11:00 am. Cost is $39. Click link for registration and additional information: https://mtcubacenter.org/event/learning-the-language-of-birds-3/
