The Joy of Birding: Becoming a Better Birder with guest speaker Greg Harber
Have you ever desired to become a birder, or feel more confident about your current bird identification skills? If so, then this program is for you! Identifying birds can be a challenge, especially when confronted with an unfamiliar species, but there are steps one can take to make the process a little easier. This program will help build your birding skills as we discuss bird field guides, binocular selection, birding apps, and field marks, which are those traits, behaviors, or marks on a bird that one can use to help when trying to identify them.
The details: This event will be held at the Alabama Wildlife Center (404 Terrace Drive, Pelham, Alabama 35124). Cider, punch, and cookies are available starting at 1:30—come early for conversation and refreshments! Note that while the program is free, admission to Oak Mountain State Park is $5/adults, $2 for children (4–11) and seniors (62+).
