More springtime happenings.

Although there is some habitat available here on our 84 acres at the Museum, eastern kingbirds are annual stopovers, I’ve yet to see them nest here. In actuality, they prefer somewhat more in the way of open spaces for their nesting.

There’s is so much for you to see outdoors. The one requirement, you have to be there to see it!

      Thanks, Jennifer. And yes, the Museum is indeed a wonderful place to experience wildlife, right here in the middle of Durham!
