Norman Bird Sanctuary welcomes the community to join them for a gourmet May breakfast overlooking beautiful views at the 36th Annual Birds & Breakfast on Sunday, May 6th.

The White Horse Tavern’s Executive Chef Rich Silvia will prepare a “delicious seasonal spread of specialties you won’t find at any other May breakfast”, according to a press release announcing the event. Guests will indulge on a carved steamship round of pork, salmon scrambled eggs, warm strawberries on toast, assorted quiches, and more while enjoying live music by local musician Greg Ferreira.

Just a step outside the breakfast tent, guests can enjoy picturesque views over Norman Bird Sanctuary’s rolling fields to Rhode Island Sound. Nature lovers and bird-watchers can embark on short nature walks lead by naturalists on the hiking trails in search of fresh signs of spring such as blooming flowers and migrant birds.

Back at the tent, children can show their artistic side by making spring-themed nature crafts to keep or give out as gifts. Kids and animal lovers of all ages will even have the opportunity to meet some of Norman Bird Sanctuary’s Animal Ambassadors up-close like their resident barred owl, red-tailed hawk, rabbit, or hognose snake.

“Birds & Breakfast is the perfect way to bring your family together to celebrate spring, connect with the community, and support open space,” said Natasha Harrison, executive director in the release, “Not to mention the delicious food!”

The proceeds from this event directly support Norman Bird Sanctuary’s mission to preserve and protect wildlife habitats for the benefit of the environment and for the enjoyment of the community and to provide environmental education programs to a diverse audience of learners of all ages.
