Birding has become an even more popular hobby since more people are home and enjoying nature. Why not take it to the next level? Join Chris Earley, Arboretum Interpretive Biologist and author of five bird field guides, for a series of eight virtual noon-hour lectures on eight different bird groups. ID techniques, field marks, shapes, behaviour clues and more will all be covered. Each course will finish with a 10 – 15 minute discussion period so you can ask all your bird-related questions. You can sign up for individual courses for $8 (plus tax) each or take all eight at the discounted cost of $56 (plus tax) – that’s eight courses for the price of seven!
Courses will be held on Fridays from noon to 1 p.m. from October 23 to December 11, 2020. Bird groups covered include: hawks, ducks, sparrows, sandpipers, gulls, spring warblers, fall warblers and spring migrants.
