Learn about backyard birding

The public is invited to a presentation by Steve Woodward, owner of Wild Bird Center of Fort Worth, Wednesday, Nov. 14.

The meeting starts at 1 p.m. at the Hood County Annex I Meeting Room, 1410 W. Pearl St.

The seminar is free.

Attendees will learn about backyard birding in North Texas, specifically identifying resident and migrating species, creating shelter and habitat for the birds and feeding the avian visitors.

Woodward started his birding business in 1999 by supplying birdseed, feeders and other supplies to the Fort Worth Zoo, the Fort Worth Nature and Refuge Center and River Legacy Living Science Center.

As a part of Wild Bird Center’s community outreach program, Woodward speaks to Metroplex clubs and organizations about the joys of backyard birding.

Woodward’s program will be given in conjunction with the regular monthly meeting of the Lake Granbury Master Gardeners (LGMG).

Space may be limited.
