Next Birders meeting Jan. 25

If it seems that it has been a long time since the Clarkston Area Backyard Birders Club last met, that’s because it has been.
That drought will end on Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wint Nature Center in Independence Oaks County Park for the first meeting of 2023.
The title of the feature presentation is “The Vital New Role of the Suburban/Urban Garden.”
“Simply put, as we will hear from Dr. Douglas W. Tallamy, if we want to have more birds, healthier birds, and perhaps even new birds in our backyards, we need to provide yards and gardens that birds want to live in, raise their young, and visit,” said club president Bill Haney. “For this special showing of Dr. Tallamy’s video, we owe thanks to a couple of our good members for recommending and providing the Tallamy DVD. Delia Niezguski suggested we talk with our good member Debbie Jackson and Debbie gave us good advice and generously provided her DVD of this acclaimed presentation.
“Fortunately, Dr. Tallamy is not only a highly regarded expert, he is a congenial and compelling speaker with a presentation chockfull of outstanding photographs of birds, their food sources, and habitats.”
Jackson is a longtime practitioner of the precepts Dr. Tallamy describes in down-to-earth language. She’ll participate in an upcoming meeting as she is a serious landlord for butterflies and will share fascinating insights, stories and tips down the line.
The meetings are free, with A.J. O’Neil’s Detroit Bold Coffee and goodies from Mary Kraut’s ovens provided.
There will also be a bumper crop of prizes for Wally’s raffle.
