Summer 2014 Sacajawea Audubon Birding Classes

Sacajawea Audubon is again offering Beginning Birding classes in June, taught by naturalist Ashley Martens. These classes were hugely popular last year and filled up almost immediately.  If you missed out last year, this is your chance to learn how to identify the birds around you.

BEGINNING BIRDING in Forest and Field WORKSHOP

Ever wonder who exactly is that flashy tropical red and yellow bird that flits through the trees in your yard in the summertime?  Or what the little brown bird in the woodpile is called?  Or why she’s there in the first place?  To help you answer all of these questions and more, Sacajawea Audubon Society is offering a BEGINNING BIRDING WORKSHOP on June 10th, 13th, and 14th.  Participants will be introduced to the basics of birding through 2 evening classroom sessions and 1 field trip.  The course will be taught by Ashley Martens, an experienced birder, naturalist, and outdoor educator.  Ashley’s approach to teaching birding engages all of your senses to figure out what you see, hear, and love about the wild birds around us.

BEGINNING BIRDING BY EAR in Forest and Field WORKSHOP

A singing bird inspires you.  Sometimes it’s enough to simply enjoy the song, and sometimes you’d like to learn more.  Who’s singing?  Why?  It is a “call” instead of a “song?”  What’s the difference?  In addition to the who and why, birds can tell us if there's a fox hiding in the brush, a person about to run down the trail, a sharp-shinned hawk about to fly through.  Come learn to identify some common local birds by song and call, and learn the 5 voices of the birds as well as some alarm patterns.
