Helping Birds – It’s Easier Than You Think: Bird-friendly Windows and Cats Indoors
January 15, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Join the Missouri River Bird Observatory and the Burroughs Audubon Society to take a deep dive into the “Seven Simple Actions to Help Birds” and find out how you can make simple changes to help birds and enrich your own life! Each event will explore two of the seven actions and will include going birding, a brief chat about the topic, and ways for you to take action that day and into the future. All events in the series will be held outdoors so make sure to dress snugly. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there!
For Jan 15th, we are talking about making your windows bird-friendly and keeping cats indoors. We will be hosted by the Lakeside Nature Center which is an incredible place to enjoy learning about local native wildlife, including birds of prey, snakes, amphibians, turtles, fish, and invertebrates. In the morning (9-11 am) we will go birding and have a discussion about how you can make your windows bird-friendly and why keeping cats indoors (or building a “catio”) can help both birds and cats. Then in the afternoon (11 – 2 pm) Lakeside will be hosting a variety of programs and booths to celebrate urban birds and meet one of their avian ambassadors! We hope you can join us 🙂
Location: Lakeside Nature Center/Swope Park
