January 23, 2022, 2:00 PM

Join Durand-Hedden via Zoom at 2pm for “Backyard Birding 101” with Tedor Whitman. Mr. Whitman is the Director of the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary in Short Hills. This online-only event is free. You must register in advance to attend this meeting using the link below. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.

Learn about the many birds that winter in New Jersey such as blue jays, white-throated sparrows, white-breasted nuthatches, Carolina wrens, downy woodpeckers, dark-eyed juncos, mourning doves, and black-capped chickadees. And find out how to get started in birding, including being able to correctly identify birds and how to set up a citizen science project in your backyard that can assist professional bird conservationists. We’ll also learn about how to best use backyard bird feeders, including avoiding squirrel invasions.

The House and Country Store will not be open.
