 Brief course description Interested in birds but don’t know where to start? This class will introduce the basics of birding, from binoculars to ethics. In four classroom sessions, we will learn the distinguishing marks of the 100 most common birds of Effie Yeaw Nature Center and the American River Parkway. Photos, many of them taken locally, will be supplemented by the sounds birds make, which are often the best way to find and identify birds. We will have two field trips, where we will see and hear birds in a variety of local habitats. 

Seminars held on four Fridays from 6:30-8:00pm: Aug. 25, Sept. 1, 8 and 15. Seminars will be at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.

Field Studies held on two Saturdays from 8:00-11:00am: Sept. 9 and 16. Field studies will be in Ancil Hoffman County Park.
