Winter is a wonderful time for bird watching. Chickadees, woodpeckers, juncos, cardinals, and more can be seen busily eating at the feeders to warm their little bodies. Enjoy the comfy Wildlife Viewing Room at Ernie Miller Nature Center every Tuesday in January and February to sit, drink free coffee, and visit while watching our feathered friends. For more information call (913) 826-2800.
