Bird Migration Workshop
September 2, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
On Saturday, September 2, from 9am- 11am FENCE will offer a free bird migration workshop led by local ornithologist Simon Thompson. Join Thompson for a workshop at the FENCE center where we will explore the nature and mystery surrounding bird migration. Hummingbirds will be leaving soon to begin their journey to Central America and after every cold front more and more of the summer birds will be heading south. Fall is an exciting time of the year as millions of birds make this incredible journey. During this two-hour workshop you will spend some time inside learning about the dynamics of migration and how and why these birds fly thousands of miles every year to breed or spend the winter. There will also be some time spent in the fields and woodlands at FENCE to see what birds are coming through the area.
