While some species head to warmer climates during winter, there are plenty of birds that stick around through the cold WNC winter. These birds have many adaptations to stay warm during the winter months, including a high fat density. In order to maintain that, birds spend the bulk of their days searching for food, which is scarce in the winter.
International birding experts Kevin Burke and Emilie Travis provide a rundown of birds you can expect to see during winter adventures and suggestions of where to go. They’ll also share ideas for turning your backyard into a winter bird sanctuary with plants that can provide food and shelter.
Well-behaved kids and pets with owner on leash are welcome at this free event.
