Student Comments

I had never taken a birding class, even though I was an amateur birder for many years. The Birding Master class greatly exceeded my expectations! I learned how to look, what to look for, how to tell similar species apart, and migration times and patterns. The patience, enthusiasm and depth of the instructor’s knowledge is outstanding.
