Local author and naturalist Frances Wood will talk about swallows, martins and swifts during Pilchuck Audubon's April meeting in a lecture titled, "One Swallow Doesn't Make It Spring."
She plans to talk about five swallows, one martin and one variety of swift, all birds commonly seen in Snohomish and Island counties.
Wood's talk will cover ways to attract these birds to your own back yard, and, like the legendary birds in California and Monroe, how to keep them coming back each year.
She'll also talk about some of the folklore surrounding these fascinating birds.
The lecture is planned for 7 p.m. Friday, April 13, Everett Firefighters Hall, 2411 Hewitt Ave., Everett.
Parking is limited.
