Fall is here and it’s time once again to welcome back our regional migrating birds! Join us for a special birding seminar on November 20th, where we will focus on our avian friends who are making their seasonal journey through the bay area. 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.
