Nature Happenings

• Help out the scientists at Cornell by participating in Project Feeder Watch this season. It starts on November 13th and goes through until April 8 and involves watching your own feeders a few times a week and recording the birds you see. Everyone is welcome to participate, children and adults alike! Get your research kit and join the watch today!

• Bald Eagles begin nesting this month with young ready to fly by late February. The Eagles in Llano have already arrived this year.

 

• Screech Owls will begin searching for a box around Thanksgiving, so make sure your box is cleaned out and ready for their arrival.

 

• Keep your hummingbird feeders clean and filled to have a chance of attracting our resident wintering hummingbird, the Rufous.

 

• Birding festivals are taking off this time of year, visit Harlingen, TX November 5-9 for the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival or visit the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in Socorro, NM for the Festival of the Cranes November 18-23.
