Join Delaware Nature Society’s Joe Sebastiani in learning how to recognize regional winter resident bird species, discussing native plant species with which these birds associate, and exploring how to better support them in your own landscapes. Begin your experience with an online orientation. Then, join us here in the Gardens for a guided bird discovery through the Abbondi property to see these beauties for yourself, in conjunction with the Great Backyard Bird Count, a mid-winter citizen science effort to capture a worldwide snapshot of birdlife.
