S20C05 Beginning BirdingThis course provides an introduction to birding, one of the fastest-growing hobbies, with both classroom sessions and field birding. We will explore our local birds: year-round, winter, and summer residents, along with migrants that briefly pass through. Learn how to recognize birds by shape, size, behavior, plumage and habitat. Topics will include how to observe birds, birding etiquette, and use of binoculars and field guides. We will explore backyard birding, attracting birds, and birding afield. Students will need to provide their own binoculars and field guide.
