National Bird-Feeding Month

February is National Bird-Feeding Month, sponsored by the National Bird-Feeding Society.  Consider participating in a citizen-scientist project, such as the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Great Backyard Bird Count, February 18-21, 2011.  The Lab offers tons of great tutorials and guides on their All About Birds site, which will help you to beef up your birding skills.  The Library, of course, has lots to offer too!  Check out these materials:
