Ohio is home to a rich variety of resident and migrant birds that live most or all of their lives around our homes, towns, and natural areas-some 419 species in total! Nearly one-fifth of the population (forty-seven million Americans) and 27% of Ohioans describe themselves as “birders”. Bird watching is second only to gardening as the most rapidly growing leisure interest. Join the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania to take a look at some of the best techniques in attracting birds in your backyard, from feeder types and seeds, to native plants and cover, and what birds you can expect. Registration requested, not required. Register at Fellows Riverside Gardens by 12/1, call 330.740.7116.
