XENIA — Greene County Parks & Trails is teaming up with the Cornell Laboratory of Orinthology to hold Projet Feeder Watch in January.

The first watch will be held 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 2 and continue Jan. 16 and 30 at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Road in Beavercreek.

The naturalist staff and participants will be monitoring types and numbers of birds staying in Greene County during the winter months.

Participants will learn about rare or unusual birds that do not normally overwinter in Ohio, as well as learning more about woodpeckers, finches, cardinals and other feeder birds. Binoculars are recommended but not required.

The event is free, but donations always accepted.
