Please bring your coffee mug and avoid using disposable cups.
We will first be sent on a photographic journey throughout Will County on a typical winter day, as if we were doing a Christmas Bird Count. We will be taken on a virtual visit of many habitats, identifying the birds in those habitats throughout that day. The journey will begin before dawn and end at dusk.
Next: Sparrow Identification. Various sparrows will be observed during this virtual winter day. Identification of Illinois' other sparrows will conclude the program. All this will be brought to us by Mr. Vern Kleen of Springfield Illinois. Vern is a retired ornithologist,
master bird bander and author. Please join us as Vern shares some of the knowledge he has accumulated since age 7.
