Ruth Beasley, host of High Plains Public Radio's Learning the Birds, will present Listening to the Birds, how to identify birds by sound at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Sternberg Museum's Engel Education Classroom. The presentation is being made to the local birding group, Herd O' Birders.

Beasley's "ears-on" demonstration will encourage audience participation and friendly competition to determine who has the keenest ears.

The presentation is open to the public.
