Fly, Fly: 2015 Winter Bird and Bat Festival

Via Wikipedia

The Beatles once sang about a bird mending its broken wings and learning to fly. Or was that the Eagles? Either way, the idea of baby dinosaurs taking to the sky, wings a-flutter, just sends a touch of enjoyment within any human being who's sought aerial time-passers as a way to ease the tedium of day-to-day living. And if that's the case with you, gentle reader, then the Winter Bird and Bat Festival at the Rio Grande Nature Center (2901 Candelaria NW) just might be the thing you need to replenish your spirit.

Happening tomorrow from 10am to 4pm, the event features guided nature walks, talks by experts in the field of ornithology (including Christopher Rustay's talk “Learn eBird and Help Bird Conservation”), crafts for kids, live birds with Wildlife Rescue and more. All of this comes for the lovely price of … oh, it's free! But you will have to pay a $3 parking fee if you're not a member of Friends of the Rio Grande Nature Center. So head to this winged spectacular to satiate those winter blues. Call 344-7240 for more info.
