Bold information below applies to Session Two.

Sign up for one, two or three days.

Join us in a three-part series of progressive workshops and field trips to build your bird watching skills and increase your joy of birding.

Each session is designed for beginners and intermediate birders that want to learn, reinforce, and refine their birding skills and techniques. These workshops and field trips use field environments to present and develop skills while we watch birds.

Topics for the Session One Workshop include: optics and equipment use and care, bird watching styles, skills in bird identification, birding by habitat, locating birds, birder communication, field guides, birding alone or in groups. Bring binoculars and field guides if you have them.

Topics for the Session Two Workshop and Field Trip include: review of Session One, more skills in bird identification, birding by ear, birding by impression, birding etiquette and ethics, birding opportunities, organizations and travel

Topics for the Session Three Workshop and Field Trip include: review of Sessions One and Two and application of newly acquired birding skills in the field including bird identification, birding by ear and birding by impression. We will revisit the birding habitat we saw during Session Two to reinforce skills and practice recognizing birds, bird similarities, and bird behavior, based on  habitat, while becoming more familiar with this natural area.

Bring binoculars, field guides, bug spray, sun screen and dress for outdoors.

Targets: Brown Pelican, gulls, terns, Grackles, doves, pigeons, and other easy to find and identify species
