Do you know that a mother robin feeds her chicks 14 worms a day?  Skagit Audubon’s presentation “Birds of the Garden” will explore the many unusual characteristics of the common birds seen in Camano Island gardens. The presentation, Wed., July 15, 7 p.m. at the Camano Multipurpose Center, 141 N East Camano Drive (Blue Building), will examine skulls, feathers and feet of these birds to unlock the mysteries of what makes a bird a bird.  The program is presented by Sheila Pera, Education Chairperson for The Skagit Audubon Society.  Pera, an avid bird watcher, is also involved with Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) and is a volunteer at Cama Beach State Park where she does bi-weekly education programs. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.
