Wed Program: August 16, 7 p.m. Popcorn and a Movie — Birds, Backyard Habitat & Beyond

posted Jul 31, 2017, 10:36 PM by Roxie Rochat

With popcorn in hand, watch and wonder as the creatures of the wild forage for food, raise young, maintain their plumage, battle for territory and much more on Wednesday, August 16, 7 p.m., at the Camano Multipurpose Center (blue building), 141 N East Camano Drive. Puget Sound area watercolor artist and photographer, Craig Johnson with his wife and writer Joy Johnson, have created a remarkable DVD that beautifully illustrates what can happen when native habitat is allowed to flourish, even in as small a space as a suburban backyard.  The Johnsons show the delights possible by recording the birds and other creatures that visit their backyard.  Using Craig’s animations, graphics, and photographs, the Johnsons offer some simple suggestions to increase the variety of birds visiting your yard. It’s also helpful for identifying birds in Pacific Northwest yards. The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.
