Southbound shorebird migration starts in July and continues through October, providing lots of opportunities to study these long-distance travelers. Differences between some species can be subtle, but most birds can be readily identified when you know what to look for. This class, taught by John Rakestraw, will help you to identify shorebirds by shape, color, and behavior. On the field trip (transportation provided) we will explore hotspots along the north coast to practice your new skills. The field trip will leave early to avoid the heat and will involve some walking.


Class with Field Trip, limited to 12 participants$95 members / $115 non-members (transportation provided)

Class-only Option: $14
