Saturday, April 4, 9 a.m.
This time the topic is Migratory Birds: vireos, tanagers, thrushes and warblers. Join me for this indoor program (rain is predicted) about the birds that migrate through the valley in April. Many of them will pause for a day or two in your neighborhood, so be on the lookout.
Migration is an exhaustive process. Migrants can lose over one third of their body weight. Most ultimately fly farther north. The Tennessee warbler practically leaves the country. But many remain in the Volunteer State to nest in the Cumberland and Smoky Mountains.
Plus, as always for our B&B, Peg will be serving a traditional breakfast. Fee: Ijams members $7, non members $12. But register soon. Space is limited to first 20 people. Call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110 to register.
