Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y. - On Saturday, February 4th at 10 a.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum presents a Feast for Feathered Friends at the Museum's Outdoor Discovery Center on Muser Drive (across from 174 Angola Road). Nature normally supplies food for our northern birds during the winter months, however, providing a little extra energy in winter can be helpful - especially if we want to invite our feathered friends in for a closer look! Learn about our Hudson Valley winter birds and how to attract them to your backyard.

 

Museum Educator, Megan Hoffman explains, "Different bird species have differing food preferences- finches love thistle, while woodpeckers prefer suet. Learn more about how to attract winter birds and make a natural bird feeder to help them find extra calories for the cold nights while brightening up your day!" For adults and families with children ages 5 and up. Admission for Non-members: $7/Adults, $5/Children. Museum Members: $5/Adults, $3/Children. For more information visit hhnm.org or call 845-534-5506 x204.
