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. Classroom sessions take place in Shields 201.

Take one or more or take them all! $25 for each or $80 for all four workshops.
