Bird Watching is a hobby enjoyed by millions of Americans and you can learn how to enjoy it as well from a professional birder. You will learn how to find birds in their different habitats and will learn how to use a field guide and look for identifying features of birds such as eye rings, wing bars, and other distinctive markings. Spring is an exciting time to study birds, with a chance to study waterfowl, raptors, warblers and sparrows, all in one season.

Dress for the weather, as we will be outside, and bring along your binoculars. There will be extra binoculars to loan if you don’t have any.
