Joy of Bird Feeding

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 - 7:00pm

Looking for a way to brighten your yard and mood this winter? Become one of the 53 million Americans who feed birds as a hobby. In this Zoom webinar, you'll join Mass Audubon naturalist Scott Santino to learn about the joys of winter bird feeding. We’ll discuss feeder types, the best seed to put in them, the birds they’ll attract, how to outsmart squirrels, and other ways to encourage birdlife into your yard and community.

Register through Zoom.
Scott Santino is the Naturalist at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary in Topsfield where he has been leading nature education programs for Mass Audubon since 1999. He coordinates the sanctuary’s volunteer Nature Guide program, training adults in natural history interpretation and is a faculty member of Mass Audubon’s Birder’s Certificate Program, a college level ornithology class.
