A presentation of the Little Big Year

All are invited to a free birding event at the Cultural Center in New York Mills on Tuesday, December 19 at 6:30 p.m.

Do you ever watch the birds in your backyard during the winter months and wonder how they survive the raging winds, driven snow and bone chilling cold? We have some answers for you.

 The Little Big Year is happy to welcome Christine Herwig back to the Cultural Center! She is the Non-Game Wildlife Specialist for the Northwest Region of the DNR, will make a presentation about winter birding.

Come and find out the what, where and how of feeding our feathered friends, whether or not to offer them water, information about winter migration and irruptions, and the strategies used by birds to survive the extreme conditions of a Minnesota winter.

This event is free and everyone is welcome.

The Little Big Year, now in its fourth year, is a group of birders that meets several times a year and counts bird sightings throughout the year.  Annual membership is only $10 and children 16 and under are free.
