OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge is hosting a fall bird migration series on weekends in November. The program series will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. on most Sundays in November. All programs are family friendly and each one stands on its own.

Programs will begin with an indoors presentation, after which participants will head outside to view and identify migratory birds in their natural habitats. Participants can bring their own equipment, but binoculars, field guides and spotting scopes will also be available.

The scheduled programs are Birding Basics on Nov. 7 and 8, Advanced Birding on Nov. 14 and 15 and Wetland Basics and Duck Math on Nov. 21 and 22. A program titled Wetland Food Cycles will take place on Nov. 28.
