Birding 101 - July 2017

Sponsored by Pasadena Audubon Society and Eaton Canyon Nature Center

Birrding provides enjoyment and challenge throughout life. Birding gets you outdoors in your neighborhood or around the world. Birding increases your ability to observe and appreciate the world around you. And finally, Birding is just gosh darn fun! So, why would you put off learning how to be a better birder any longer?

This class is designed for beginners, but all are welcome. We will cover the basics of identification (sight, sound, behavior), optics, field guides, note-taking, habitats, birding ethics, and many other topics. Or goals are to help class participants become familiar with local birds and to be comfortable on birding field trips. Class size is limited, so don’t delay!

Classroom sessions: Wednesdays July 12, 19, and 26, 2017 beginning at 7:00pm.

Field trips: Saturdays July 15 and 22, 2017 from early morning to early afternoon.

Participants should plan on attending all classes and field trips. Location of the class and field trips will be sent to the class participants.

Cost: $50 for Pasadena Audubon members, $70 for non-members (which will include membership in Pasadena Audubon Society). This fee will cover all three classes and two field trips. Payment is payable to "Pasadena Audubon Society" and is due at the first class session (there are scholarships available for young birders).
