BEGINNING BIRDING AND BEYOND   

Birding provides a connection with nature, relieves stress, hones observation skills and brings joy! This course aspires to more than bird identification. It is an introduction to bird behavior, habitats, survival adaptations, migration and birding ethics. It will prepare new birders with tools to use for finding, identifying and appreciating birds in the Denver metro area.

The first class will include birding optics, field guides, birding apps, birding ethics and local birding resources. Subsequent classes will encompass bird behaviors, habitat, seasons, bird banding and other topics, designed to assist students to find and identify birds in the field and learn about where and when they can encounter them, including in the backyard. We will point class participants to numerous great birding sites and resources in the metro area and beyond.

There will be 4 classes on Zoom (April 5,12,19 and 26) and the other two will be field trips led by Denver Audubon Master Birders. (May 3,10). One of the field trips will include a visit to the bird banding station at the Denver Audubon Nature Center to see many migratory bird species up close with an experienced bird bander.

This course requires a $40 fee payable at registration as a donation to Denver Audubon.
