On Tuesday, Oct. 19, the Bloomingdale Garden Club will present "Backyard Birds & Bird Feeding" with David Brooks at Cornerstone Faith Community Church, 118 First St. in Bloomingdale. Visitors are welcome. Social time and announcements begin at 6:15 p.m. with the program starting at 7 p.m.

David Brooks is a professional naturalist who teaches about Illinois natural history and green landscaping. He works with and welcomes garden clubs to visit Spring Valley's Nature Center (111 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg) throughout the year to learn more about prairie wildflowers and ecology, spring migrant birds, heirloom kitchen gardening, and the history of Schaumburg's German farming community.

 

In the presentation, learn the "how to" of attracting a variety of birds to your yard with feeding stations and food plantings. His program will include a who's-who of common local birds and some of the migrants to be observed in spring and fall.
