Join a group of fellow bird lovers to share your sightings, ask questions and learn about featured species during monthly Birds and Coffee chats with the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. All events begin at 10 a.m. on Zoom and are hosted by W.K. Kellogg Biological Station educators Lisa Duke and Misty Klotz.
The Sanctuary’s popular Birds and Coffee Walk series will continue in an online format this summer. The next chat, on Wednesday, July 14, will focus on some brightly colored birds, like Cedar Waxwings and Indigo Buntings. This chat is also part of the No Family Indoors program, a partnership with Pierce Cedar Creek Institute and other community organizations.
The August chat, set for Wednesday, August 11, will look at insect-eating birds, including the Eastern Phoebe and Great Crested Flycatcher, among others.
The September chat will take place Wednesday, Sept. 8 and will examine sparrows, including the Song Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow and Eastern Towhee.
Birds and Coffee chats are free and open to the public, but donations are welcome, and registration is required to access information on how to join the events.
