Backyard Bird ID & Craft

McFarland Park, Story County

Saturday, February 17, 2024

Join us for an important citizen science project, the Great Backyard Bird Count while we learn to ID common Iowa bird species and make some bird crafts. Start the morning off right with a provided light breakfast of bagels, donuts, coffee, and juice while you craft. Then cozy up inside by our bird viewing window to ID some common winter backyard birds. Whether you are a novice bird watcher or a seasoned “bird nerd”, we could use your help counting!
