Join us to learn about the most commonly encountered backyard birds in Western North Carolina. Getting to know your backyard birds first is a great way to enter the wonderful world of birding. We’ll also go over ways to attract more birds to your yard with a brief discussion of feeders, nesting boxes, bird baths and landscaping.

Kevin Burke was introduced to birding while taking an ornithology class and has been birding every day since. He has a degree in resource recreation and tourism from the University of Idaho and honed his birding skills teaching environmental education. Kevin has led birding trips across the country to Washington's San Juan Islands and Idaho's back country and abroad with trips to Portugal and Colombia. His lifelong journey has developed into a desire to share his knowledge and help others grow their skills.
