Workshop Tells Why Some Birds Stay Put for Winter

Workshop Tells Why Some Birds Stay Put for Winter

The Winter Bird Workshop runs Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. (HANDOUT)

Fun fact: Only 10% of Manitoba birds will stay in the province for the winter — the only few to not join their friends in warmer climates down south.

Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre will explain why these particular birds remain, who they are, and how they find food and comfort during the chilly winter months in Manitoba.

The Winter Bird Workshop will be held Saturday to address these concerns from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The cost to attend is $5 for both members and non-members.

The marsh is located at 1 Snow Goose Bay on Highway 220 near Stonewall.
