Our hummingbirds will be leaving soon to begin their journey to Central America and after every cold front more and more of our summer birds will be heading south. Fall is an exciting time of the year as millions of birds make this incredible journey. During this 2 hour workshop we will spend some time inside learning about the dynamics of migration; how and why these birds fly thousands of miles every year to breed or spend the winter. We will also spend some time in the fields and woodlands at FENCE to see what birds are coming through our area.
This event is made possible by the Kirby Endowment at the Polk County Community Foundation
