Birding 101 is tailored for beginning birders. It utilizes both classroom sessions and field trips to teach everything from bird identification to field etiquette to birding techniques and resources. The course is taught by local birding experts Wil Hershberger, Lynne Wiseman, Nancy Kirschbuam and Carol Winckler. An impressive collection of images and recordings, many captured by the instructors, enhance the course.

The field trips will be held at various locations around the Panhandle from roughly 7 a.m.–12 noon on the corresponding Saturdays (April 13, 20, 27 and May 4).

The Saturday morning field trips allow participants to practice skills learned in the classroom. Participants will visit a variety of habitats to observe the bird species found in each. Field trips are held entirely outdoors, so participants should dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared for muddy conditions.

Class size will be limited to 24 participants. The course is open to people of all ages but children younger than 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please email any questions to Krista Hawley at or call 681-252-1387.
