Our feathered friends will be at center stage at Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area during our second annual program series: Birds and Breakfast. Come enjoy a cup of coffee or juice and have breakfast with the birds. Have you ever seen all the feathers of a goldfinch or chickadee or other songbird up close? Well this is your chance. You will witness this unique scientific process up-close, and then help us release the birds back into the wild.
From 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. for four Saturdays the Wildlife Society of the University of Arkansas will be catching song birds, handling these birds, and then releasing them back into the wild. Learn about how this type of research has taught us many things we now know about birds.
Breakfast sponsored by Wild Birds Unlimited.
