Backyard Birding event in Sequim set for Saturday

SEQUIM — Shirley Anderson and Ken Wiersema will offer “Birds: The Inside Story” at the next Backyard Birding series event, set for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Rainshadow Hall at the Dungeness River Nature Center, 1943 W. Hendrickson Road.

In 2010, Anderson — a retired high school biology teacher — started the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society’s Backyard Birding Program. A year later, Wiersema joined Anderson by integrating his graphics skills into the “inside story” presentation.

In this session, Anderson and Wiersema will discuss information on wild bird identification, biology, feeding and nesting, as well as how and where birds use the habitats of the Olympic Peninsula. They will reveal how birds eat, digest, see, breathe, sing, reproduce and fly.

Admission to each seminar is free; however, organizers suggest a donation of $5 per person to support ongoing education programs.
