While the rest of the world will be clamoring for deals, the woodpeckers of Missouri will be busy fliting about looking for food and shelter. If you’d rather keep pace with a woodpecker than stand in line for hours, why not #optout(side) with us and enjoy some of nature’s most beautiful birds. Winter is one of the best times to see woodpeckers. The program will begin in the auditorium to learn the basics of identifying these birds by coloration, size, habits, and sound. We will then go outside to meet them in their habitat over easy, accessible trails (about half a mile). If you’d prefer to stay indoors, you can test your ID skills at our bird viewing station. You are welcome to do only the auditorium portion if you prefer. Alex Holmes
