Virtual Winter Birding: Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge with Greg Baker

Join Greg Baker and virtually bird Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge! This is a quiz-based class designed for participation. We will focus on identifying birds by overall impression.

Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is a short drive away from the Portland metro. The refuge protects premier grassland, marsh, and woodland habitat along the Pacific Flyway. Ridgefield NWR was originally established to protect wintering populations of the Dusky Canada Goose subspecies, but the wetland landscape also protect such favorites as Sandhill Crane, Hooded Merganser, and Green-winged Teal in the winter.

Whether you are a novice or have been birding for years, this class will help you sharpen your skills at finding and identifying winter birds on Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, South Unit.

Our focus is on birding by sight, sound, habitat, and behavior. We will cover most of the frequently encountered winter species as well as some less-common species that birders should anticipate this time of year. The examples of birding by general impression presented in this class are designed to help you find more species, be more confident in your tentative identifications, and add richness to your birding adventures going forward.
