If you’re just getting started with birding, it’s natural to be a little overwhelmed. What are the little brown birds on my feeder? What are all those cool ducks we have in winter, and how can I tell them apart? I heard a woodpecker in the park - what kinds do we have in Seattle? Which birds live here year-round and which are just passing through? Once you learn how to find birds, observe them carefully and identify them, birding becomes a fabulous lifelong hobby that only gets better and better with time.
Join us for an informal, fun-filled, innovative introduction to birds and birding. This hands-on class will incorporate sight, sound and habitat to create a holistic approach to learning. A local field trip will provide time in the field to see lots of birds, ask questions and sharpen your skills.
Suitable for all levels of beginners, from armchair feeder-watchers to those who have spent some time in the field and would like to develop their identification skills.
