Birds play many important roles in our environment: pollinating plants, controlling insects, dispersing seeds, and recycling nutrients back into the earth. Their changing patterns of migration and population can tell us about the effects of climate change, water quality, and changes to the landscape that affect not only birds, but people and all living things.

Watching the native and migratory birds in your backyard or in the field encourages us to take greater notice of the world around us.

To help you learn the names and the habits of our backyard birds for your own enjoyment and to prepare you for joining in on the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) taking place from February 12 - 15 in San Miguel, Audubon bird guide Bob Graham has created a fascinating and humorous presentation that will highlight what other clues one needs to look for to differentiate birds of similar color.

Bob, a former park ranger and avid photographer, has been studying and enjoying birds for many years. Through photographs and description he will share how to start with a bird's color to begin the process of seeing the unique features of each species and to learn them by name. Bob will also describe the habitats where you will likely find these birds and the important role of water in supporting a healthy bird population.

Bob Graham is a retired Senior Park Interpreter responsible for heading up the Presentation Programs at Canada's premier birding "hotspot", Point Pelee National Park located in extreme South-western Ontario, Canada. He has a long association with Sociedad Audubon de Mexico as a past President and Birding Committee Chair, and is currently an active Audubon bird guide extraordinaire.
