Many birds have migrated to warmer climates by now, but there are still plenty weathering the winter months here in Massachusetts. During this program at Joppa Flats in Newburyport you can observe a winter bird banding demonstration, make a birdseed bagel or a fruit wreath for your backyard birds, and string popcorn and cranberries to decorate the center's feeder tree. Those ages 7 and up can design the ultimate bird feeder, examine bird wings, and take an interactive quiz on winter bird calls. There will be storytelling, crafts and guided games about trees, birds and weather for kids ages 2 to 6. The program is a perfect way to enjoy the natural beauty of this festive season. Sun., Dec. 16, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. All ages. Free. Children must be accompanied by adults. This is a rain or shine event. Meet at the Joppa Flats Education Center. One Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport. www.massaudubon.org/Nature_Connection/Sanctuaries/Joppa_Flats/
