Winter Finches and Feeding Tips
Thursday, November 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Wisconsin’s cold and snowy winters are brightened by birds, including familiar favorites at backyard feeders and irruptive finches that periodically move in from the Canadian boreal forest. Learn from DNR conservation biologist Ryan Brady what drives the migrations of redpolls, crossbills, grosbeaks, waxwings, and other winter songbirds, where to find them in our area, and how to attract these fascinating species to your backyard. Ryan will also provide tips for better backyard bird feeding, including feeder styles, seed types, water sources, and more, with plenty of colorful photos along the way!
