Where: Schaefferstown Good’s Store
When: Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019, 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
What: Birding Seminar
Do you enjoy watching and feeding birds in your backyard? On Saturday, January 26, 2019, there’ll be a special Birding Seminar at the Schaefferstown Good’s Store. There will be two sessions: the first talk will be at 10:30 a.m. and the second one will be at 1:30 p.m. Both sessions will cover the same material, so you can pick which time will match your schedule best.
Our speaker will be Fred Sensenig, who has been an avid birding enthusiast for 45 years. He works for a company that sells birdfeed and feeders, and is an expert on how to attract wild birds to your yard. Fred describes his pastime as “an enjoyable hobby that allows the enthusiast to bring wild birds into their lives, gardens, and yards.”
Fred will be showing slides as he is talking, and he will talk about the different species of birds, what they eat, and their habits. Learn about feeding wild birds, selecting feeders, the right kinds of birdseed, where to place feeders, and the enjoyment that people of all ages can get from feeding birds.
Another topic will be squirrels— he’ll have information for both folks who love feeding squirrels and folks who are working hard to keep them out of the birdfeeder.
Whether you just enjoy watching birds, or if you can identify birds by their songs and give their Latin names, you’ll enjoy Fred’s talk! Each session will last at least an hour. There will be a door prize drawing and refreshments.
Note: all of these backyard bird photos were taken by Good's Store employees. The other photos are from the Birding Seminar in previous years.
