Birding 101
Rebecca Van Dyke, a birder and OLLI member, introduces us to her world of birding and the added joy of exercise, outdoor beauty and identifying birds. Kelly Vore, owner of Downtown Home and Garden, will share her bird experience with feeding and watering tips as well as discuss the challenges of coexisting with squirrels and other critters and managing that never- ending quandary. Rebecca Van Dyke is a retired UM physician who has lived in Ann Arbor for 30 years. As the eldest child of a college biology professor (who knew his ornithology), she knew little aside from some of the common birds. When she retired six years ago, she started to travel and realized that it was fun and challenging to look for and identify birds. She has traveled in the US and abroad, often with knowledgeable guides. This past year she has explored many of the wonderful parks and nature preserves in the area, combining exercise (walking), viewing beautiful nature and finding and identifying birds. Downtown Home and Garden has been providing quality birdseed and feeders for Ann Arbor and our surrounding area for decades. It was the first to bring thistle feed to Michigan and it continues to receive weekly deliveries of seed from L & D Finkbeiner Farm, from Saline. Its drive-thru barn (originally built for horse and buggy in 1905) easily accommodates today’s vehicles for swift drive thru and load and go. Quick, convenient and out of the elements!
