Birdwatching for Beginners via Zoom


with Rebecca Lexa

Calendar Jan 25, 2024 at 6 pm

Take time to familiarize yourself with the beautiful birds of the Pacific NW. Learn to identify them by sight, sound, habitat, and behavior. Even in urban areas, birds are some of the easiest wildlife to observe, but how can you tell which is which? Learn how to tell thrushes from warblers, hawks from eagles, waterfowl from wading birds, and more. Whether you're a backyard birdwatcher or eager to go out into the wilderness to check species off your life list, this is a great class to get you started!
