Backyard Birding to spotlight ‘The Inside Story’

SEQUIM — After a long hiatus because of COVID concerns and building construction, Backyard Birding programs hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS) are underway for in-person instruction in the newly remodeled Dungeness River Nature Center, 1943 W. Hendrickson Road.

Second in the series, scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday is “Birds — The Inside Story.”

Shirley Anderson and Ken Wiersema will present a seminar packed with information on the physical features and biology of birds: how they eat, digest, see, breathe, sing, reproduce and fly.

Attendees will learn from a collection of bird skeletons, feathers and feet along with new graphic illustrations and recorded sounds.

This eight-part 2022-23 program series features information about wild bird identification, biology, feeding, nesting and habitats of the Olympic Peninsula. Classes are developed for folks new to birding and to the region as well those who wish to hone their bird knowledge and skills.

Admission to each seminar is free; however, a donation of $5 per person is suggested to support OPAS’s ongoing education programs.

Current COVID-19 safety precautions as recommended by Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Clallam County Public Health will be followed for the protection of attendees and volunteer staff.
