Description

Whether you're interested in birdwatching from home, participating in citizen science, or birding across Michigan, novice and aspiring bird lovers will benefit from Greg Bodker's presentation! 

Learn how you can experience the excitement of birds, with topics including the differences between birding and birdwatching; how to select backyard bird-feeders and care for them; why feeding throughout the year adds new species to your life list; tools to take on a birding trip; the ethics of responsible birding; and strategies for finding specific species and birding hotspots!

Greg Bodker has been a serious birder since 2006, combining his interest in birds, nature, and photography as often as possible. Greg has led birding trips for Michigan Audubon and was on its Board of Directors for three years.  Currently, he enjoys delivering birding and nature presentations to Library audiences throughout Michigan and Texas.  Greg is proud to report that, in June 2018, he was lucky enough to see his 600th North American bird species in Arizona.
