Online Migratory Birding Seminar

December 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Learn how to identify birds at China Camp with our free online course

Lesser scaup, ruddy duck, bufflehead… Bird species or… Shakespearian insults? These peculiar names actually belong to several migratory waterfowl species that one can currently find wintering  at China Camp. Want to learn how to view them and where to look? Join us for a special birding seminar on December 18th, where we will teach you what you need to know to get started as a birder. No birding experience needed.

This one-hour online seminar will give you the skills to identify common birds in the field and to effectively use essential tools like binoculars and bird guides. We will help you identify new birds by observing flight patterns, noting body shapes and sizes,  hearing songs, and looking for other clues to bird identification.


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.
