Gulls and Shorebirds Field Trip
with Kevin Karlson

April 24 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Come along and learn about the fine points of identifying gulls and shorebirds with the man who wrote the books about these birds, Kevin Karlson. Gulls Simplified (2018) and the Shorebird Guide (2006) are two of Kevin’s books that share a different style of ID for these birds that puts emphasis on physical features and comparative ID with similar species as well as traditional ID points without using confusing scientific terminology. Kevin will take us to hot spots on Galveston Island to view these birds as well as any other birds we encounter, so come out and enjoy a casual morning of birding to end your FeatherFest experience with Kevin and the birds.

Add Kevin’s Gulls Simplified Workshop on Saturday for a perfect workshop/trip combo.
