Travis County Audubon Society presents:
Put Out the Welcome Mat for Backyard Birds with Jane Tillman
Wednesday, March 22 • 6:30-8:00pm

WB Community Library • 15001 Wells Port Drive

What is a bird looking for, when it decides your yard is a good place for a drop-in visit or long-term stay?  Just like humans, birds need food, water, shelter and places to raise young safely, to thrive.  Learn how to attract a diversity of expected backyard species, using native plants, water features, supplemental feeders, and nestboxes.  Your yard will come alive with bird song and activity!
Jane Tillman is an active member of the Travis Audubon Society, a Capital Area Master Naturalist and the current president of the Native Plant Society of Texas, Austin chapter. Since 2003 Jane has been teaching people how to attract birds to their yards with native plants.  She teaches beginning backyard birding classes, leads field trips and gives talks about Central Texas birds to groups including garden clubs, neighborhood associations, birding festivals, libraries, and Kiwanis clubs.
