Second Saturdays: Bird Love

This past Saturday, February 13, the nature center hosted its monthly Second Saturdays event.  This month we got swept away with bird love as we focused on birds!  Our topic, courtship rituals, was just in time for Valentine’s Day!  The day was full of fun activities including a guided hike, live bird show and tell, bird feeder making, and a bird nest craft.

Special guest UCR professor Gene Anderson kicked off our event day with a guided bird watching hike where he and visitors participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count.  After the hike, visitors came back to the center and were greeted by a variety of birds, including love birds!  Our friends at Magnolia Bird Farm in Riverside came out and joined us for this fun event, bringing with them live birds that visitors got to get up close and personal with!

The Ameal Moore Nature Center would like to thank both Professor Anderson and Lori from Magnolia Bird Farm for making our day so much fun!  If you missed this free, family friendly event, don’t worry!  Our Second Saturdays program happens every month!  Join us next time in March as we focus on nature journals!
