Class: Beginning Birding

This event has passed.

Winter in the Bay Area means migratory shorebirds and waterfowl are here in the thousands. This great introduction to bird-watching will teach you about the migrants as well as year-round residents. Instructor Anne Hoff will familiarize you with the tools of the trade — binoculars, field guides, scopes, and the best local places to watch birds. In Wednesday evening classroom sessions, she’ll introduce you to different kinds of birds. Then on the following Saturday, she’ll help you spot them in the field!

Five Wednesday evenings — 7 to 8:30 p.m. — Feb. 12, 19 and 26, and March 12 and 19. (Note there is NO class on 3/5.)
Five Saturday field trips — 8 to 10:30 a.m. — on the Saturdays following each class.

This class will take place at the Golden Gate Audubon building at 2530 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley (at Blake).
