The New School of Birding, Module 1

Back by popular demand is our School of Birding series, taught by expert birders and trip leaders, Candace Larson and Dan van den Broek. The New School of Birding series, is a six-week course with classes and in-person field days that will take you on a riveting journey through the world of bird biology, field identification, and conservation. Through lectures, quizzes, helpful handouts, live interaction with your instructors, and extensive field time, you’ll build both your birding skills and gain a deeper understanding of what’s going on beneath all those feathers!

Our inaugural series will focus on some of the secrets that birds have on the inside. Birds are amazing flying machines, and the physiology that provides for this most famous of superpowers includes an impressive synergy between lightweight bone mass, powerful muscles, ultra-efficient respiration, and many other unique adaptations. We hope you’ll join us on this exciting journey!
