(SOUTH YARMOUTH) – As winter settles in across Cape Cod, it’s a great time to participate in seasonal bird watching.

But what should you be looking for and what species are most active during a Cape Cod winter?

Thirwood Place in South Yarmouth will be hosting an exciting presentation on February 4, 2020 at 1 p.m. entitled “Winter Birds – Cape Cod’s Year-Round Residents.”

Phil Kyle, the former head naturalist at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, will enlighten the audience on the survival behaviors and cold weather adaptations of Cape Cod’s local winter birds.

Kyle has dedicated his life to the study and public education of the natural world. According to the museum, after obtaining his B.S. in Biology from Cornell University, he served in a variety of capacities at the Cape Cod Bird Club, Green Brian Nature Center, Cape Cod National Seashore and on local whale watching vessels.

He has also been a teacher of Biology and Anatomy & Physiology at Barnstable High School.

Lunch will be served following Kyle’s presentation and tours of Thirwood Place will be available. Reservations are required by January 31, 2020. RSVP to 508-760-6545.
