Enjoying Birds and Butterflies at Home and in the Field

Take a close look at the birds and butterflies in your backyard and in the field. Learn important information for creating a feeding station for birds and setting up a garden for butterflies at your home. We will discuss types of food and other ways to attract the widest variety of birds to your backyard. There will also be a discussion of what to plant in order to attract butterflies to your garden. Learn to identify these birds and butterflies at home and in the field, using a system of field marks and behaviors that can be helpful without having to memorize the whole bird or butterfly. Bird song is also an important method of identifying birds as we can often hear many more than we think we see. Local field trips to see birds in the Philadelphia area will be arranged in class.
