Event details

Bird photography is fun, but finding the birds can be challenging. This program will take advantage of the feeder area at Plum Creek Nature Center to ensure the birds cooperate. Staff will provide information on identifying bird behavior to help get the best bird shot.

Bring your camera or cell phone. A good zoom lens or zooming capability will help. This program will not focus on camera operation but provide tips on how to locate and focus on photographing birds.
