Summer Shorebird Classes

I’m offering two classes on shorebird identification in August. Summer is prime time for studying a variety of shorebirds in adult and juvenile plumages. Learn how to identify shorebirds by shape, behavior, choice of habitat, and plumage.

On Saturday, August 3, I will be at Jackson Bottom Wetlands from 9:00 AM to noon. After a short classroom session, we will walk out to the wetlands to see both summer resident and migrant shorebirds. Registration information can be found here.

I will be at Portland Audubon Thursday evening, August 15, from 6:30 – 8:30. This class will go into greater detail, and cover both inland and coastal species. You can register for the class alone, or sign up for the class and field trip, which will go to the coast on Saturday, August 17, from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM.  (Transportation provided) Registration information can be found here.
