"Birds of Winter" Class Tonight At Center For Urban Horticulture

UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) is course called
"The Birds of Winter" tonight from 7-8:30pm.  The cost is $15.

The information says:
While we cozy up to the fireplace and drink a hot toddy, the birds of winter are out in the rain, sleet and snow carrying on their normal lives. Winter can be a hard season for birds, but they are also well equipped to handle most challenges. Come listen while master birder and nature author Constance Sidles tells you the tales of how our birds survive in winter.  
Our swans should be back home by mid-November, with babies in tow. The raptors are coming down from their breeding grounds in the north, the sparrows are settling in, and hummingbirds are starting to hibernate each night. Lots more is happening, if we only take the time to stop and look at the nature that surrounds us. 
Time permitting she will read an excerpt about winter birds from one of her books.
