The Joy of Backyard Birdfeeding

Add to Calendar 2020-07-15 18:30:00 2020-07-15 19:30:00 America/New_York The Joy of Backyard Birdfeeding New Jersey is filled with a wonderful variety of year round feeder birds.  Roxbury Public Library

New Jersey is filled with a wonderful variety of year round feeder birds. 

From tiny hummingbirds, chickadees and titmice to the larger cardinals, orioles and woodpeckers, there is a great opportunity to attract many of these familiar and not-so familiar birds into our backyard.  How do we attract the birds we want to see?  What are the best feeders and foods?  What types of birds can we expect to attract and how do we stop those unwanted visitors for eating all the food and damaging our feeders.  The 'Joy of Backyard Bird Feeding' will help answer all these questions and more.

Jim Walker is the owner of Wild Birds Unlimited, a retail store located in Denville, NJ, that caters to the backyard bird feeding enthusiast to help bring more joy to the hobby.
