Winter Bird Watching in Your Back Yard - Feb 5

Spring Lake, MI--What type of birds can we see during the winter in the Tri-Cities? Join Dr. Michael Lombardo at Spring Lake District Library on Tues., Feb. 5 at 7:00 p.m. to find out. Dr. Lombardo, a Professor of Biology at Grand Valley State University and member of the Owashtanong Islands Audubon Society, will share a colorful slide presentation featuring a variety of winter birds as well as information about their habitats and behaviors.

This birding presentation can help novice and expert birding enthusiasts prepare for the 16th annual Great Backyard Bird Count. The Backyard Bird Count will take place Feb. 15 through Feb. 18. Bird count participants count the number of each bird species they see during the count period and enter the number on the Great Backyard Bird Count website, www.BirdCount.org.

Birding enthusiasts can find the web resource, Birds of North America Online, on Spring Lake District Library’s website, www.sllib.org.  Access the site from within the library or from the convenience of your home with your Spring Lake District Library card. Birds of North America contains information about 716-plus species of birds including photos, audio, and video clips.
