Nature Series: Winter Bird Feeding in the Susquehanna Valley

Nature Series: Winter Bird Feeding in the Susquehanna Valley

On Saturday, September 23 at 10am, join the Friends of the Tanger Arboretum and presenter Dan Hinnebusch for “Winter Bird Feeding in the Susquehanna Valley.” As the seasons begin to change, cold temperatures, snow and ice, and food scarcity will make winter a challenging time for backyard birds. At this presentation, attendees will learn about which birds spend their winter in the Susquehanna Valley and what backyard bird enthusiasts–or those new to backyard birding–can do to help birds thrive.
