SALISBURY — Sharon Audubon naturalist Bethany Sheffer will give a free virtual presentation about spring migratory birds on April 14 at 7 p.m. in a program hosted by Noble Horizons, a senior living community on Cobble Road.

Viewers can learn to begin identifying these birds, learn why migratory birds undertake their often perilous journey and where they come from. They’ll also learn about birds like the Blackpoll warblers, who almost double their body weight to fly 2,300 miles nonstop for 86 hours. Sheffer will explain how people can create sanctuaries by providing food, water, and shelter for them.

Sheffer has worked as an on-site naturalist and education outreach coordinator with AmeriCorps. She has done passerine/raptor surveying and is a certified environmental educator and certified beekeeper.
