Massachusetts is home to a wide variety of birds, and wildlife, due to the diverse habitats we are blessed with. This presentation will focus on birds and provide an overview of many species that live in our state, and include more common winter residents that people can find at their feeders this winter. Along with bird feeders, we often find black bears these days. We will discuss best practices for keeping your home “bear free”.
Massachusetts has had a very successful “bald eagle reintroduction project” which will be discussed.
We will conclude with an overview of some of the wildlife found in our state.

She has worked in the environmental education field for over 30 years developing , teaching, and overseeing adult programs, day camps, nature preschools and special events. One of Patti’s favorite birds is the American Crow, as it is one of the most intelligent of animals, and everyone has the ability to see crows and learn from observation! Patti can be found following the crows to their winter roosts most winter evenings!
