“Who Is That At My Feeder?” @ Cranford Community Center
Nov 12 @ 7:00 pm
“Who Is That At My Feeder?” @ Cranford Community Center | Cranford | New Jersey | United States
Calling all bird lovers!  Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, November 12th at 7:00 PM at the Cranford Community Center for the presentation, “Who Is That At My Feeder?” Pete Axelrod from Wild Birds Unlimited of Scotch Plains will discuss how attracting birds is a great way to bring us closer to nature while offering hours of enjoyment.  This program will introduce us to the birds that commonly come to backyard feeders and how to distinguish between very similar species. He will also discuss unusual birds that have appeared this season.  Birds add another dimension to the artistry of a garden with their striking colors, behaviors and allure of their songs!
 
Pete has been a nature enthusiast since the age of five.  His passion led him to study Wildlife Biology and Natural History Interpretation.  Pete has volunteered in avian population studies, wild bird rehabilitation, habitat restoration, wildlife education and birding ventures throughout New Jersey (with NJ Audubon, Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and The Raptor Trust). He enjoys cycling, kayaking and hiking and always has his binoculars handy!  
 
The Cranford Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford, NJ.  The program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required, but seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  This presentation is sponsored by the Hanson Park Conservancy.  To learn more, please visit our website, www.hansonparkconservancy.com or like us on Facebook.
