Presentation: ‘Saving Our Backyard Birds’

Submitted by Ann Westling

The Western Kingbird is among the many birds found in Nevada County. A free presentation on “Saving Our Backyard Birds” is scheduled for February 16 in Nevada City.

A fun and informative presentation on "Saving Our Backyard Birds" will be sponsored by Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release from 6 to 8 p.m. on February 16 at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City. Linda Adams, avian biologist, will give a slide presentation focusing on the many species that visit and nest in the "backyards" of Nevada County. She will cover reasons wild birds need assistance and what to do when you find a bird that appears to be in distress. Included will be tips on living with wildlife, hazard and problem prevention measures, native plants that provide food and cover, feeders, nest boxes, safe pest control, and more. At the break, attendees will get to meet up-close-and-personal, a Great Horned Owl, one of the group's wildlife ambassadors. The presentation is free.
