> 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.

> This winter, the Coastal Center at Milford Point will be participating in Project Feeder Watch. We need your help to observe and count birds at our feeders. Anyone with an interest in birds can participate. Whether you are a beginner or expert birder, the data you collect will help scientists understand changes in bird populations around the country.
>
> Join us for this free workshop and learn how to identify and count backyard feeder birds using the Project Feeder Watch protocol.
>
> The season runs November through April. Our count days will be Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. You must attend one of the workshop dates to participate in the count at our Center. Project Feeder Watch is a citizen science project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Citizen science is a way for the public to contribute to the scientific understanding of the natural world.

> This program runs rain or shine and is appropriate for adults. This workshop is free. Registration required. For more information, please call Carol Kratzman at 203-878-7440 ext. 504.
