NEW: Introduction to Birding with John Patterson

We will consider the appeal and beneficial aspects of birding, what you need to get started and how to tailor the activity to fit your own interests and skills.  Using winter birds and waterfowl as examples, we will develop identification skills – observe field marks and bird behavior, recognize bird song and understand the role of habitat in finding and identifying birds.  We will also review binoculars, field guides and smartphone apps that can enhance your birding experience. Includes outdoor session.
