2020 Spring Lecture Series #4: Robins to Raptors: Observing Birds in Our Backyards
March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$8.00
On March 26, Robyn Puffenbarger, chair of the Department of Biology and Environmental Science at Bridgewater College, will give a lecture on “Robins to Raptors: Observing Birds in Our Backyards.” Drawing on the college’s bird skin collection, she will help participants build their skills for identifying bird species that inhabit Virginia, from woodpeckers to owls to songbirds to raptors. She will also provide insights on their habitats, migration patterns and diets, as well as strategies to attract more birds to our backyards. Her lecture will be in Room A of the Albemarle County Office Building on 5th Street Extended, just off I-64.
