Thursday, March 2nd: (refreshments 6:45 PM; program 7:15 PM)
Tyvola Road Senior Center, 2225 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210
It’s that time of year when the birds are pairing up and defending territory. Birds can’t send love notes or post ‘no trespassing’ signs, instead they use their lungs. They woe mates by serenading them. And ward off interlopers by blasting them with warning songs. That means it will be getting noisier around your neighborhood over the next few weeks. To most of our human ears it’s more like a cacophony of sound but our feathered friends know exactly what is being said.

This month Ken Kneidel, our fearless leader, will introduce us to some of the sounds (songs & calls) you will be hearing more over the next couple of months. He’ll take us through a typical day of sound, from the energetic dawn chorus to the soothing sounds of nightfall. We’ll hear some of our old friends but also be introduced to some new ones from south of the border. To keep us on our toes, Ken will have a few challenges for us as well.

So put on your listening caps and prepare your ears for learning a few new songs. As usual, refreshments will begin at 6:45 PM with the program starting at 7:15 PM sharp.
