Presented by Connie Sidles, Master birder, author and speaker

Have you ever wondered why sleeping birds don't fall off their branches the minute their eyes close? Or how ducks can stand on ice-clad ponds without freezing? Or how swifts can sleep in skinny chimneys without slipping to the bottom? Join nature author and master birder Connie Sidles as she discusses the specialized "tools" that birds have developed to forage, fight, and otherwise care for themselves and their young as they fill niches on air, land, and sea. Step lively and put your best foot forward, you'll never watch birds the same way again.

This program will be held at Soos Creek Botanical Garden in the Red Barn, adjacent to the parking area.

Soos Creek Botanical Garden and Heritage Center is dedicated to promoting the enjoyment, understanding and conservation of plants and the natural world along with our community’s local history through education, research, and stewardship.
