Event Summary:
Learn about Prairie Birds

Event Description:
To some, sparrows may seem insignificant—a group of mostly small, mostly brown, superficially similar songbirds. Even those of us who love birds may be tempted to brush sparrows off as LBJs (“little brown jobs.”) But the truth is that there are several dozen sparrow species in North America alone, and each is unique with something special to offer.

As the weather continues to turn colder, many types of sparrows are moving south, showing up in prairies, weedy fields, along woodland edges, and at backyard feeders across the Hill Country. This workshop will give you a good starting point for identifying local sparrows by their field marks.

You will also learn the protocol to get you ready to volunteer with the Winter Prairie Bird Surveys on Cibolo Preserve, a property normally closed to the public. Sparrows are excellent bioindicators to gauge the health of the prairie ecosystem—an ecosystem that is being converted to cropland and development and being lost at an alarming rate.

Attend this workshop in the Cibolo Nature Center Auditorium to increase your birding skills and to become a community scientist and LBJ hero!

SPARROWS AND THE PRAIRIE ARE WORTH THE EFFORT!

Cost: $20 for members, $25 for non-members
