Chickadees and Sparrows can look a lot alike. How do you tell them apart? What is the difference between a Crow and Raven? Find out the answers to these questions and learn the basics of bird identification at this special birding program for kids. Presenter Grant Mehring will introduce the birds we might find in our neighborhoods and help us learn how to think about identifying a bird that we are seeing. Join us for this fun and interactive program that should leave you a better bird identifier! This event is for all ages, but geared towards kids 7 - 12 years old.

Grant Mehring is a self-taught birder with plenty of lessons from experienced area birders. He has guided area bird walks, taught birding classes for the Fargo Park District, served on the board of Audubon Dakota (now Great Plains), and gets his friends and family more interested in birds all the time.

This event is part of the "Adventure Begins at Your Library" Summer Reading Challenge sponsored, in part, by the Friends of the Fargo Public Library.
