Why Bird Feeding Makes a Difference
April 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join ABAS Board Director Brian Cunningham for an informative program about feeding the birds.
Anyone who has ever fed wild birds knows that it can bring joy to their lives. But, does bird feeding just benefit people? Do the birds become dependent on the food we provide? We’ll take a look at what we have learned from various scientific studies and citizen science data on why feeding wild birds makes a difference for the health and well-being of people and for our backyard feathered visitors.
