SEQUIM — Winter Care and Feeding in the Garden will be the topic of the next program in the Backyard Birding series.
Christie Lassen of Wild Birds Unlimited will present the program from 10 a.m. to noon Dec. 10 at the Dungeness River Audubon Center in Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.
This will be the third in this season’s Backyard Birding series, which is hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS).
The public is invited to attend any or all of the 10 sessions. For adults older than 18, a $5 fee will be payable for each class. After five classes are attended, a free year of membership in OPAS will be offered.
Lassen’s presentation will cover general bird feeding, including types of feeders and different feeds for attracting specific birds with an emphasis on the North Olympic Peninsula’s over-wintering species.
She will include specific ideas for providing continuing winter water supplies and meeting the needs of the Anna’s Hummingbird which has started staying here throughout the year.
She will address specific questions from participants.
