Dave T. Chapman is back with The Adventures of Winter Birding!

This exciting program will provide insight for viewing beautiful birds in the cold season whether you enjoy bird watching along hiking trails or in your own backyard. It will focus on many of the songbirds that visit your feeders, but also some of the rarities that can sometimes stay around after the breeding season. This eye popping presentation on backyard songbirds, waterfowl and birds of prey will set you off on a lifelong journey of looking for all your favourite species.  

This Program is running from December 1st 2022 until March 31st 2023 and it is FREE!
