Learn the secrets of attracting a variety of birds to your yard in a class at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

The cost is $19 for the public or $15 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15.

Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, Oct. 13. To register call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or go online.

Instructor Jeff Tome is a senior naturalist at the Nature Center. He has been watching birds at bird feeders most of his life and had to be very creative to attract birds to his current yard.

The class will go into the basics of feeding, identifying and attracting birds.

Just like people, birds need food, water and shelter. They are fairly fussy and are looking for a variety of things in any yard: not all food or shelter is created equal.

You will learn some fantastic recipes for homemade feeds that the birds adore. You will also learn a variety of ways to create shelter for photo opportunities of birds outside your window.
