I can’t offer my usual classes due to pandemics and such, but I am offering one-hour webinars through Portland Audubon. Go to their website to sign up.

Beginning Shorebirds

July 27, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
This class will introduce you to the most common shorebird species that pass through the Willamette Valley each year. You will learn to identify shorebirds by size, shape, behavior, and habitat. We will concentrate on the common species to keep from getting overwhelmed.

Birding Oregon Hotspots: Cannon Beach/Seaside

August 3, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
While very popular with tourists and beach-goers, the area around the towns of Cannon Beach and Seaside include some excellent birding sites. This online class will introduce you to the best sites, direct you how to get there, and show you what birds to expect.


Shorebirds II

August 13, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Bring on the overwhelm! This class will look at some of the less common shorebirds that pass through Oregon every year. We will compare them to more common species to help you pick the rarities out of the crowd. It will be helpful if you are already familiar with the more common species.
