Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to announce the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event. Five Common Birds of Astoria with Barbara Linnett will be on Sunday, February 17, at 1:00 p.m. This presentation is part of the February 15-18 worldwide Great Backyard Bird Count activities in the park.
Enjoy an hour of indoor birding: no binoculars, hats or boots needed. Our skies and waterways are filled with amazing feathered wildlife most of the year. Have you wondered what they are all doing zipping around out there? This talk focuses on five favorite Clatsop County birds- including identification, behavior, migration patterns, breeding and nesting, feeding needs, and how and where to enjoy spotting them in this area.
Barbara Linnett is a bird enthusiast and wildlife volunteer who believes that the more we share and learn about nature, the more we appreciate, protect and love our natural environment. She is a retired nurse who volunteered for the Wildlife Center of the North Coast near Astoria for eight years.
In Their Footsteps is a monthly Sunday forum sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
