Fly Me There: Winter Bird and Bat Festival

The revving of engines, stop lights blinking incoherently at passersby, the soft roar of city life igniting beneath a starlit sky … it's easy to get lost in the shuffle of living in a metropolitan area. And thus, it's easy to forget that nature is all around us. When scoping the sides of highways from one city to the next, the flora and fauna is often lost … a mere speck of life outside the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle. And it's this natural wavelength that is going to be awakened at the Winter Bird and Bat Festival, being held at the Rio Grande Nature Center (2901 Candelaria NW).

The festival will have live birds and bats shown by the Audubon Society as well as guest speakers with topics ranging from “Rosy Finches in the Sandias” to “Painting the Wonders of Creation with a Camera.” There will also be bird identification, a bosque bits table and activities for the youngsters. The festival happens on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 10am to 4pm. It's completely free, but an all-day parking pass is $3. Not bad for getting back in touch with the elements.
