Take your birding to the next level! This intensive workshop will offer something for every bird enthusiast and all levels of birding experience are welcome. The workshop will consist of five parts:
Online Zoom Classes: April 5, 12, & 19, 2022, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Aullwood Audubon Bird Walk: Saturday April 30, 2022, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Bird Banding Experience: Spring Valley Wildlife Area, Saturday, May 7, 2022 [Time TBD]
After 4.5 hours of online instruction, spend Saturday, April 30 putting some of those lessons into practice with a birding trip in and around Aullwood Audubon led by Sam Romeo! Finally on May 7, join local bird-bander Bob Thobaben for a hands-on bird banding experience, learning how to identify, sex, weigh and band birds before releasing them. Bird banding will take place near Spring Valley Wildlife Area, 40 miles south east of Aullwood; transportation is not included.
During the workshop, you will learn:
- How to identify local birds and know when to look for them
- Key field markings and habitat choices
- Bird behavior including song, migration, and nesting
- Using eBird to jump-start or fine tune your birding experience including how to explore local “hot-spots” or plan trips to find those rare species
This workshop is $175 per person. Transportation is not included, and space is limited to 12 participants.
