Birds topic of Northfield talk

NORTHFIELD — The Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center presents “Birds at Your Feeder” on Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m.

According to a post on the Nextdoor social networking website, the indoor program will focus on identifying species of birds, interesting behavior to look for, where to place feeders and which types of seeds attract which birds. Participants will visit a bird feeding station, with an indoor view. Binoculars are encouraged.

Though the program is most appropriate for adults, children ages 9 and older are welcome, the post reads. Advanced registration is not required.

Catch dinner and a show in Warwick

WARWICK — The Arts Council is holding a Souper Supper on Saturday at 6 p.m., followed by a performance by Trailer Park at 7 p.m. Both events will be held in the Town Hall.

The supper will include a variety of homemade soups, chilies, breads and desserts, according to an Arts Council press release, with many of the selections selling out last year. Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for children.

After supper, the Northampton-based band Trailer Park will play in the first concert of the 2018 Wooden Fender performance series, according to the release. The band — made up of Tom Mahnken, Rick Page, Greg Lauzon and Joe Fitzpatrick — primarily plays a mix of original music and New Orleans R&B tunes.

Donations are accepted at the door to pay the band and support the ongoing efforts of Wooden Fender, an offshoot of the Arts Council, to keep live music happening in Warwick.
