VERY BEGINNING BIRDWATCHING

Dates:  September 25-26

Days:  Friday and Saturday

Times:  6 – 8 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday

Location: Shields 201 for classroom session & South Hills for Field Trip

Instructors: Experienced birders from Prairie Falcon Audubon, Inc.

Fee: $55

The birdwatching class will teach students about the migrants and seasonal visitors, as well as year-round residents in the Magic Valley. Instructor Sarah Harris, with help from local Audubon members, will familiarize participants with the tools of the trade — binoculars, field guides, scopes, and the best local places to watch birds. In the Friday evening classroom session, we’ll introduce students to different kinds of birds. Participants 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  help students spot them in the field. No prior birding experience required. Note: Attendees will need to bring their own or borrowed binoculars to the first class and to the Saturday field trip and drive themselves to the south hills.
