BEAVERCREEK — Locals can participate in a research project with Greene County Parks & Trails as well as the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology in Project Feeder Watch. The project will take place from 11-11:30 a.m. Dec. 5 and Dec. 19, at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Road.
Naturalist staff and participants will be monitoring types and numbers of birds staying in Greene County during the winter months. The data will help scientists track movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.
Participants will learn about rare or unusual birds that do not normally overwinter in Ohio, and will learn more about woodpeckers, finches, cardinals and other feeder birds. Binoculars are recommended but not required.
The event is free.
