Whidbey Audubon Society presents
Bird in the Hand, a Close-up Look at Birds
Sunday, September 18th
Noon to 3 p.m.
Bayview Farm & Garden Greenhouse
2780 Marshview Avenue, Langley
Every child or adult becomes an enthusiastic birder as each bird is examined up close to see and feel the spectacular colors and patterns of Whidbey’s common birds. Whidbey Audubon Society has a federal permit to keep and display birds that have met an accidental demise as long as it’s done for educational purposes. The growing collection of passerine, waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds and a few seabirds represents a unique, museum-quality specimen library. This free exhibit intends to deepen knowledge of local wildlife and to protect the environment necessary for birds to survive.
See owl pellets and live raptors with their falconers too. The Answer Man, Steve Ellis will answer the most daunting questions. Habitat-friendly plants are displayed and available at Bayview Farm & Garden.
