    March Meeting — March 20, 2018: “Birds in Your Backyard”

    Speaker: Chris Sweigard, manager of Wild Birds Unlimited

    A chilly winter morning can seem magical when you peek out the window and see dozens of birds fluttering around your feeder. Cardinals. Finches. Chickadees When you feed the birds, you know you’re doing something good not only for your well-being but for your neighborhood and environment. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife, watching birds in the backyard is America’s second favorite hobby behind gardening. Yet, there are always questions. When, during the year, should I start feeding birds? Should I stop in the spring? Why can’t I attract more varieties to my urban garden? Chris Sweigard, who manages Wild Birds Unlimited (6496 Glenway Ave., Cincinnati), is our go-to expert this month. Chris will provide the basics of backyard bird feeding — including a few dos and don’ts, choosing the best food and feeders, and dealing with those irritating squirrels.
