Which feathered friends visit bird feeders during the winter? Join Natural Lands Trust’s staff member Debbie Beer to find out, and participate in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC)! This international initiative engages people of all ages and experience levels in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Just a few minutes of bird watching contributes valuable citizen-science data – it’s free, fun, and easy.

Natural Lands Trust’s Hildacy Farm Preserve encompasses 55 acres of meadows, wetlands, and woodlands, providing safe haven for a variety of resident and migratory birds. Chickadees, titmice, sparrows, woodpeckers, wrens, and raptors all call Hildacy home for the winter. We’ll use eBird to track species and submit realtime GBBC data.

After a brief indoor presentation with birding tips and guidelines, we’ll head into the field. Dress warmly for winter conditions and wear sturdy shoes. Bring binoculars, if you have them; a few will be available to borrow.

Event is free. Registration required to reserve your spot. Please complete and submit the secure, on-line registration form below, or call 610-353-5587 ext. 221.

 

Note that events may be cancelled due to inclement weather or low registration. In that case, we will make every effort to update our website and contact registrants
