Fall migration is a challenging time for birds. Find out what birds are stopping in your yard or local park during migration. Learn how to turn your yard or park into an oasis for migratory birds. The right plants provide important food, and reduce hazards by turning off lights at night and making your windows bird-friendly.

Registration is required for this presentation.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
