Watch the Birdie!

Although “watch the birdie” relates to old fashioned photography, we’re talking about friends who light up our skies and trails during this time of the year. 

Winter white creates a perfect backdrop to make local birds stand out, so we’re taking a cue from nature and invite you to join Evergreen Audubon and Evergreen Nature Center in celebrating the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Learn more about your flighty neighbors through games, conservation crafts and (of course) bird watching. Who knows, you might catch a glimpse of a Western Scrub Jay, a Killdeer or even a Pine Sisken. 

Grab your binoculars and learn about your fine feathered friends of Colorado. Start a new family tradition! You won’t believe how easy it is to become a citizen scientist in your own backyard. We’re kicking off the three-day event by turning birdfeeders and local trails into literal field labs. Register online one week in advance. Limit: 25 participants.

Kickoff event:

1 – 3:30 p.m. Friday, February 12

Evergreen

Suitable for:  Ages 6-12
