Description 

Many people find that watching birds at their feeders is a fun hobby and a great way to chase away the winter blues. This course is an introduction to common backyard birds found in northcentral Wisconsin. Tips on identifying the most common species will be given along with suggestions for what to feed, types of feeders, and tips on creating a “bird-friendly” yard. Whether you are new and would like to start feeding birds this winter, or you’ve been doing it for years but struggle to identify all the feathered creatures that visit, each session will have something valuable for you.

Instructor Brett Barker is associate professor of history at UW–Marathon County, where he has taught since 2002. In addition to his love of history, Barker is an avid bird enthusiast and is always excited to share his passion of bird watching.
