Winter birds workshop
Unlike their counterparts to migrate to warmer climes, there are many hardy birds who stick around for Connecticut winters. Children ages 6 to 12 may learn about them at a Birds of Winter Workshop on Saturday, Jan. 20, from 11 to 12:30, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road.
Educator Lola Chen will discuss what birds are in the area for the winter while children make bird feeders with grapevine and suet. She will also talk about the kind of information gathered by the National Audubon Society at its annual Christmas Bird Count. The children will help make their own snack.
The cost for society members is $10 per child, maximum $25 per family; non-members pay $15 per child, maximum $35 per family. Register at email@example.com or call 203-762-7257.
