Audubon lecture held at North Highlands

Join naturalist Anne Swaim on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 2 p.m. at the North Highlands Fire House for a look into the world of bird nests in her talk, “Bird Nests, Bird Architecture.” Using only their beaks, birds of all shapes and sizes are able to create and construct nests out of mud, grass, sticks, moss and even snakeskins.

Swaim is an expert on what she calls “bird architecture” and is the executive director of the Sawmill River Audubon Society in Chappaqua.

The program is being presented by the Putnam Highlands Audubon Society and is family-friendly as well as being free to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, visit
