About The Event

During his richly illustrated PowerPoint presentation, Bill Gette, Founding Director of the Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport, MA, will

review the species of birds typically seen at local feeding stations and in backyard sanctuaries. He will discuss aids to field identification (e.g., size, body shape, bill shape, behavior), ranges, food preferences, and other exciting facts about these amazing animals that not only survive but prosper, in our severe New

England winters.

Bill will highlight how the ranges and populations of many of these bird species have changed in recent years due to climate change, changes in land use, and development. He will also discuss things that you can do to create backyard sanctuaries and attract birds.
