Birdwatching 101 – Field Trip
February 26 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
SPRING 2022 BIRDWATCHING WORKSHOP SERIES
MUST REGISTER WITH CSI COMMUNITY EDUCATION – SEE LINK BELOW
Description: This introductory workshop will teach you about the birds that can be observed around the Magic Valley. Instructors from the local Audubon Chapter will familiarize you with the tools of the trade — binoculars, field guides, scopes, and the best local places to watch birds. In the Thursday evening classroom session, you will be introduced to different kinds of birds. You will learn about the observation skills necessary to identify a bird by size and shape, color patterns, behavior, and habitat. Then on the following Saturday, we’ll head to some local birding hotspots to practice what we learned in class. No prior birding experience required. Note: You will need to bring your own or borrowed binoculars to the classroom session and to the Saturday field trip.
Improve your birding skills — or get started in birdwatching with some friendly, expert help! Prairie Falcon Audubon is offering a series of stand-alone workshops for all levels of birding experience. Take one or more or take them all!
$25 each (includes classroom and field trip) or $80 for all four.
