March 10, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Bird Sense

$35 General Admission



Did you know an Eastern Mockingbird perfects each song it learns before it moves on to another?  Did you know that a juvenile bird needs to eat up to a third of its body weight with each feeding?  Are you curious who that bird you see is every day on your walk home is?  Or who sings that beautiful song every night at dusk?  Birds are endlessly entertaining.  Everything they do is about their survival and yet, they do it in a way that (at least looking at) seems effortless and beautiful.  Their lives are fascinating and they willingly share this world to us if we listen and look closely.  Spend a Saturday in an intimate class setting while soaking in beautiful woods, watching the birds, and sharing in ways to connect to the natural world around you.

In this class we will explore:

  • Learning the steps to easily identify your bird neighbors
  • Bird Behavior and other species behavior
  • Habitats and Food Sources
  • And a brief introductions to Bird Alarms (the language the Birds share about who else is in the neighborhood)
