The Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding

Monday, September 16 @ 7:00 PM

Woodbridge Main Library - Ground Floor Meeting Room

Please join us at the Woodbridge Main Library on Monday, September 16th at 7:00 PM for the presentation, The Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding.  Pete Axelrod from Wild Birds Unlimited of Scotch Plains will discuss how attracting birds is a great way to bring us closer to nature while offering hours of enjoyment.

This program familiarizes participants with using bird feeders, water and shelter to attract native birds. In addition, we will learn about unique and interesting bird behavior. We will also learn how to discourage nuisance animals and how to make our properties bird-friendly. Birds add another dimension to the artistry of a garden with their striking colors, behaviors and allure of their songs!

Pete has been a nature enthusiast since the age of five. His passion led him to study Wildlife Biology and Natural History Interpretation. Pete has volunteered in avian population studies, wild bird rehabilitation, habitat restoration, wildlife education and birding ventures throughout New Jersey (with NJ Audubon, Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and The Raptor Trust). He enjoys cycling, kayaking and hiking and always has his binoculars handy!
This program is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
