FULL. Waitlist available.
Are you a lapsed birder? Still remember a robin from a jay, but the sparrows all run together? Moved across the country and finding new birds? Or maybe you’re finally retired and have time to do what you love? Outdoors person who wants to enhance the experience? Or maybe you took the Beginning Birding class and want more? The Advanced Beginning class is geared to people who meet all those descriptions and more. Participants must have and use binoculars confidently. Field trips will be to East Bay shoreline, woodland, riparian, and grassland locations. This class will help you understand the various bird families and work on tricky IDs. It will also introduce you to community science (bird counting/ monitoring) activities and current bird conservation issues.
