Wondering about the name of that bird in your backyard? Join your neighbors and learn about field guides and binoculars. Learn the categories of birds and the methods used to identify them. Obtain a step-by-step process to identifying birds and finding them in a field guide.
Take your observation skills and birding knowledge to the next level. You will learn how date and habitat shape the expected species in the Bay Area, while incorporating sound and behavior into your identification repertoire.
The Spring is a shorter, 3-week session, with a heavy focus on songbirds and breeding bird behavior.
Recommended textbook: Any North America or Western North America bird field guide (Sibley’s Guide is a great one).
