Discover the Joys

of Backyard Birding


Livingston Library Community, 

Did you know that your backyard is home to wonderful native wildlife? On Monday, May 1st, at 7pm, the Livingston Library invites you to join us in the Library’s program room for a lecture on The Joys of Backyard Birding

During this lecture you will learn both how to identify and how to feed the birds that pay your backyard a visit. You will also learn what feeders and food combinations work the best to attract specific bird types to your yard such as cardinals, blue jays, chickadees and more! Physical examples of feeders and feeder setups will also be displayed during this informative talk. All are welcome and registration is not required for this Friends Funded event.
