A few younger siblings and parents also attended the meeting. Youth were introduced to binoculars and then spent the remainder of the morning watching winter birds. The next event, an eagle watch, is scheduled for Feb. 10. All bird lovers ages 8 to 18 are invited to join; a parent or adult must accompany birders who are 11 years or younger.
