Greg Harber of the Alabama Audubon will discuss winter birds that we normally see in our area and how to identify and attract them. For these two consecutive Tuesday evenings, we will learn more about what attracts these birds and how to keep them visiting our yards. These programs are co-sponsored by Alabama Audubon, whose mission has been to promote conservation and a greater knowledge of birds, their habitats, and the natural world since 1946. Greg Harber has been a member of Alabama Audubon since he first moved to Birmingham in 1986. During that time, he has served in various capacities, including as a chapter officer and as a key member on several committees (Bird Counts and Education, among others). An avid cyclist and master birder, he currently serves on the Alabama Audubon Board of Directors and as chair of the Field Trips committee.
