Backyard Birds

Can you identify a cardinal by its color? By its song? By the shape of its head? Can you tell the difference between a starling and a grackle? Amateur naturalists aged 10 and up will enjoy this program about the birds we find in our backyards, bird behavior and some practical birding tips. Spring is a great time to learn about backyard bird songs and calls, because this is the breeding season and they are very active.
