Birds of Winter:

 If you think that winter is a slow time for birds on Cape Cod, well think again!  Fresh and saltwater ducks, loons, and grebes are plentiful on open water throughout the season, and your feeders are alive with an assortment of songbirds including sparrows and finches. This presentation will provide an overview of the common birds seen on Cape Cod in winter, as well as discuss best bird-feeding practices to attract them to your backyard.

Orleans native Christine Harris Bates is a naturalist and public programs coordinator with Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Prior to working for Wellfleet Bay, Christine was a Park Ranger at the Cape Cod National Seashore and coordinated and led canoe trips in Nauset Marsh. She has a passion for ornithology and is a skilled birder.
