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!

You've got the tools, you know how to identify them, but where are they?! This class will focus on how to attract birds to your yard and how to find birds.

"Who Goes There?" An outdoor tracking walk at Fields Pond

$12

with Sandra Mitchell

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 22, 2020 at 9 am

Location: Fields Pond Audubon Center, Holden

Members: $8,  Nonmembers: $12

Join Sandra Mitchell for a 2 hour easy walk around the nature center at Field's Pond looking for evidence of winter critters in the landscape.  We will look for signs big and small - ranging from tracks in the snow (hopefully) to evidence of animals feeding.  The walk will be easy - often when there is much to see, we actually don't get very far at all! Sandra Mitchell is a Registered Maine Guide and a Cybertracker certified Wildlife Tracker. She loves to prowl around outside to see what her wild neighbors have been up to!  Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Learning Bird Language: Step into a Bird's World

with Dan Gardoqui

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 11, 2020 at 7 am

Members: $55 Nonmembers: $70
Location: Gilsland Farm, Falmouth

Are you curious about the lives of the birds around you? Have you ever wondered what they eat, where they rest at night or what they’re saying? This half-day field workshop is not a field identification walk - instead, it's a chance to slow down and connect with birds on a deeper level by building empathy & understanding. Designed for everyone - from novice to expert - Learning Bird Language is a refreshing take on connecting with birds. 

The program is led by international Bird Language expert Dan Gardoqui. Dan is the founder of Lead with Nature and has been teaching about birds & nature connection for over 25 years. He is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic naturalist and Registered Maine Guide.
