By all accounts our first program of 2020 was a huge success. From 4:30 to 6:00pm on February 6, folks gathered at The Cove to learn about our winter birds and how to take care of them. The program began with a presentation from our resident “birder cum laude”, Susan Goldsworthy, on recognizing and feeding our winter feathered friends. Following Susan, Cathy Nell gave an update on Sherwood Forest’s application for Audubon certification of the gold course. As many of us know, the open grassland of the gold course presents a very different bird habitat that attracts different species than our forest. The last presentation was a hands-on demonstration on how to make tasty bird “suet” using peanut butter. Yum!
As per forest tradition, refreshments were served. The “Hummingbird cake” was a huge hit (no hummingbirds were harmed.)
If you have Powerpoint, you can watch the presentations from Susan and Cathy.
