Free birding workshop offered
A birding-by-ear workshop, offered by Monadnock Ledger-Transcript Backyard Birder columnist Francie Von Mertens, begins next Monday, April 22, 7 p.m. at the Peterborough Library. Three consecutive Monday evening indoor sessions will be followed by weekend field trips to area conservation lands as well as a few backyards.
As spring migrants return and start singing for territory and courtship, tips for recognizing species songs will be covered with an emphasis on birds heard and observed in local backyards.
There is no charge for the class, however donations to local conservation organizations are encouraged. Bring a birding field guide and notebook to class. Phone 924-6550 if you need additional information.
The workshop is appropriate for all ages.
