Are you interested in taking your friends or community members birding? Join Alex Harper for a very leisurely course on teaching birding. We will do this in an urban park where we expect to run into our typical urban birds. The great thing about looking for birds here is that we won't be overwhelmed by numbers of birds, and can focus on only the species that are regularly found in small parks, schools, and neighborhoods in the metro area.
We will go over the main categories of bird identification: shape and shape, grouping, behavior, season and habitat, voice and field marks. Not only will we learn how to better teach these skills to other people just starting their birding adventures, but we will also get to know our backyard birds even better.
Meet at the north end of the parking area near the community garden. The building does not open until 9:00 am, but there are facilities there. We will tour the community garden at the end of the event to show people how to create habitat at home.
