Winter and the holiday season mean many things to bird lovers. Snowbirds like juncos are arriving, Christmas bird counting is near, and frozen feeders for sparrows and woodpeckers will be filling up. Join Jason “the Birdnerd” St. Sauver, senior education manager at Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center, for a fun and informal look at common birds found in and around Lincoln in the winter and during the Christmas Bird Count. Learn about identification tips and which birds to expect in the area at this time of year. Bring your bird questions as Jason loves a good Q&A!
Since the December general meeting traditionally has begun with a silent auction and potluck supper, it has been followed by a special light-hearted program. Jason is one of our members’ favorite presenters. Even though there will be no auction or potluck this year, we can still count on a fun-loving program where everyone is bound to learn something new, too!
Jason became Spring Creek Prairie’s education director in April 2015. Before that, he was the education manager and interim center director at the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center in San Antonio, Texas.
