Audubon Teaches Nature: Baby Bird Season

April 24, 2016, 2:00 pm4:00 pm

There are many sure-fire signs of spring: the days are longer, flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the nightly chorus of insects will soon fill the air. Accompanying that birdsong is the chirp, chirp, chirp of baby birds. What to do when one finds one? Is it injured or orphaned? Is it okay to touch it, or put it back in the nest? These are all questions that will be answered by Scottie & the AWC team; come prepared to learn the answers!

Programs are held at the Alabama Wildlife Center at Oak Mountain State Park, and the adjacent Oak Mountain Interpretive Center. Admission to the park is $5.00 per person, but the program itself is free. Come early to enjoy refreshments at the Alabama Wildlife Center and the birds at the feeders, then, when it is time for the program we will proceed to the auditorium.

Next month’s program:
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the May 22nd seminar, Exploring Wild Alabama, featuring Larry Davenport and Ken Wills, will be postponed until the fall. Thus, the April program will be our last seminar in the series before we break for the summer. Make plans now to join us on our summer field trips!

The 2015-2016 Season of Audubon Teaches Nature is co-sponsored by the Birmingham Audubon Society, the Alabama Wildlife Center, the Oak Mountain Interpretive Center and Friends of Oak Mountain. During this twenty-fifth year of Audubon Teaches Nature we will explore and celebrate the diversity of Alabama’s natural history. These seminars will provide you with the knowledge and skills to allow you to more fully enjoy your time in the field, whether birding, botanizing, hiking or biking. Audubon Teaches Nature will give you the unique opportunity to meet and learn from some of Alabama’s leading naturalists and authorities who are willing to share their years of experience and special knowledge to make your outdoor experiences more enjoyable. Our programs are designed to showcase the beauty and natural history of Oak Mountain State Park and the central Alabama region.
