On Wednesday, November 14th at 7:00 pm, join Lynne Flaccus, naturalist and Stewardship Director from the Chocorua Lake Conservancy as we explore the wonderful world of birds; their unique adaptations, what they need to survive, behaviors, and tips on how to tell them apart.

Most of us learned what a bird is when we were knee high to a grasshopper, but with over 6000 species around the world, there is so much to learn about our back yard birds and who we share our neighborhood with!  Project Feeder Watch, a project through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is a citizen science project that involves the public in gathering information at winter feeding stations. It’s easy to be a scientist and make observations, collecting “data” that scientists will use to track birds and their populations. Come learn how the Cook Memorial Library is involved with this project and how you might become involved during your library visits, or how you might set up your own feeding station and become a feeder watcher at home.

We hope you’ll come with questions and enthusiasm for learning more about our feathered friends!
