Description: Greene County Parks & Trails hosts "Bird Feeding for Dummies"

Greene County Parks & Trails will turn participants into a bird-feeding mannequin from 2:30 to 4 p.m., Saturday(s) Feb. 9 and 23, at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Rd., Beavercreek.

With an oversize coat, a wide brim hat and some bird seed, naturalists will attempt to have the birds feed right out of your hand.

"This is the first time Greene County Parks & Trails has offered this unique opportunity," says Greene County Parks & Trails Chief Naturalist Cris Barnett. "It's a great chance to view the birds. Parents are urged to bring their cameras to capture some special memories."

The event is held immediately following Project Feeder Watch at the nature center.

Participate in a research project with Greene County Parks & Trails as well as the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology in Project Feeder Watch beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday(s), Feb. 9, and 23, at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Rd., Beavercreek.

The naturalist staff and participants will be monitoring types and numbers of birds staying in Greene County during the winter months.

Participants will learn about rare or unusual birds that do not normally overwinter in Ohio, as well as learning more about woodpeckers, finches, cardinals and other feeder birds. Binoculars are recommended but not required.

Project Feeder Watch is free and open to the public; hand feeding the birds is $3 per person with a maximum of ten minutes allotted per participant.

For more information, call Greene County Parks & Trails at 937.562.6440 or email jbowman@co.greene.oh.us.
