Birds at Fort Hartsuff Family Event

Staff Writer

The public is invited to a morning with the birds. At this free event people will receive hands-on instruction on how to ID common birds of the area and how to choose and use binoculars. People will be welcome to hike around the fort using the new birding skills with the aid of practiced birder, Amy Hughes. Back at the barracks everyone will make a recycled bottle bird feeder to attract birds to back yards. The morning will wrap-up with a live Raptors of Nebraska presentation from Nebraska’s very own Raptor Recovery. This is a family friendly event inspired to celebrate International Migratory Bird Month.
