Winter is an excellent time to start learning about bird identification, especially when there are great community science programs such as Christmas Bird Count (CBC) and Project FeederWatch in which anyone can participate and contribute data right from the comforts of home!

Join Sharon Audubon Center Education Program Manager Wendy Miller and Trixie Strauss Christmas Bird Count Compiler Zach Adams on this fun introduction to some of the most common feeder birds you may see at your feeders this winter.
