January Birding Event
Saturday, January 9
South Bend-Elkhart Audubon Society Wildlife Sanctuary
(We don't have a birding event in December)
Meet Brian Miller and Vic Riemenschneider at the SBEAS wildlife sanctuary for a great opportunity to see some of our
winter birds as they visit the feeders. We usually have a good variety of birds, including woodpeckers, White-Breasted Nuthatches, Brown Creepers, Tufted Titmouse, Chickadees, Cardinals, Blue Jays and White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows.
We will have spotting scopes set up to see the birds UP CLOSE & PERSONAL. Not only will the feeders be filled, but also hot drinks and donuts will be available and we will have a fire in the stove to help keep us warm.
If you have any question about our field trips, please contact Brian Miller at 574-291-0804 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday, January 10
Rum Village Nature Center
Sandy Imanse will present "How Animal Farming Affects the Environment." Sandy, a bird watcher since youth, expanded her interest in birding into researching the effect corporate farming is having on the environment.
A trained social worker, Sandy is employed as a behavioral health counselor with HealthLinc Community Health centers.
The public is cordially invited.
