Birds of winter

The lowdown -- While most birds have flown south for the season, others stay behind and forage for food. The Carrie Murray Nature Center's Feeding Our Feathered Friends event Saturday helps provide for the birds who stay here in the winter. You can build bird feeders with pinecones and milkweed pods and take home several feeders for the birds in your backyard.

If you go -- The program is noon-2 p.m. $3. Recommended for age 8 and older. The center is at 1901 Ridgetop Road. For more information, call 410-396-0808.

On the trail
