Birding Basics: Behavior

$15

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Nov 1, 2018 at 7 pm

Back by popular demand, we will spend a few weeks to revisit the basics of birding. This is the perfect opportunity for people newly interested in birding, novices needing a refresher, and for even the 'pros' to learn something new. Every two weeks we will cover a different topic that is essential to birding. You can review the courses and join us for the topics that interest you!

When we go birding, we get a quick glimpse into the lives of those birds. This week we will focus on learning about bird behavior and analyzing exactly what it is birds are doing throughout the day.

Members: $10, Nonmembers: $15

Now that you know the basics of birding, why do it? Learn how the sightings you make while out birding can contribute back to scientists on a local and global level. We will discuss data collection techniques and explore various citizen science projects including the Great Backyard Bird Count, eBird, and more!
