Online Beginning Birding Seminar

January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

LEARN HOW TO IDENTIFY BIRDS AT CHINA CAMP WITH OUR FREE ONLINE COURSE

Winter is here and the bay area is abounding with migratory Cedar Waxwings, Golden Crowned and White Crowned Sparrows as well as Pine Siskins and other boreal finches. Pine Siskens are especially abundant in the bay area this year due to food shortages along their migratory flight path further north in Canada.  Want some insight on how and where to spot these beautiful birds? Join our upcoming online seminar on beginning birding, led by naturalist Jerry Coe.

 

You’ll learn how to identify common birds in the field and to effectively use essential tools like binoculars and bird guides. You’ll also find out other clues, including how to identify birds by observing flight patterns, noting body shapes and sizes,  and hearing songs.

 

Jerry Coe is a naturalist with over eight years of intensive training in ornithological field identification. He spent 15 years as a volunteer in Nevada’s Great Basin National Park, using bird activities to assess the health of habitats. Jerry has also guided outdoor expeditions all over the world.
