August 3, 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Shorebirds II: The Less Common Species

August 10, 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Late summer brings the southbound shorebird migration. This is when we find the greatest diversity of species, and the biggest variety of plumages.
Shorebirds I is an introduction to the most commonly encountered species. This class is for those who are just starting to learn the shorebirds, and for those who need a refresher course.
Shorebirds II focuses on the less common shorebirds, comparing them to familiar species. It is not required that you take Shorebirds I before taking this class, but it will be helpful if you are already familiar with the common species.
