During the current Covid-19 period, this class is being held LIVE ONLINE via Zoom.

The Intermediate Birding Online course develops your birding skills through ID practice on our Bay Area wintering waterfowl, shorebirds and landbirds. We will utilize a 1 hour weekly Zoom meeting to practice ID skills via slides and recordings, and we will sharpen those skills on 3 Saturday field trips (subject to county health mandates).

Optional Textbook: Any North America or Western North America bird field guide (Sibley’s Guide is a great one).
