Spring is just around the corner, and that means bird migration will soon be under way. Join Drew Haffenden for this two-week course designed to bring you either up to speed, or to refresh your dusty memory from a year ago, in identifying migrating shorebirds. Many of us are used to seeing breeding-plumaged birds for only a few weeks each year, but shorebird migration is a protracted event, starting in late February/early March and continuing until early June. We will be focusing on features that separate different species rather than the overall features of each species, and include both full and partial breeding plumage, as for most species we see both during migration. Join us and be prepared for that trip to the coast—or other shorebird area—this Spring!

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on two consecutive Mondays (3/15, 3/22), from 6–7 p.m. CDT. It will be a one-hour online class with some time at the end for questions. 

Cost: Your one-time registration fee of $20 covers the two meetings.* (While you are not required to attend each class, do note that we cannot refund individuals for partial attendance.)

Registration: To register, click on the button above. If you’re not an Alabama Audubon member and don’t yet have a username and password, simply click the “X” on the pop up and fill out the basic form. If you do have a login, please use it as this helps us tremendously on our end! You should receive an automated email upon registering.

Please note, you will receive a separate email with the Zoom webinar instructions before the first class (once registration closes). You’ll need the link or webinar ID and password from this email to join the meeting. In the event the link does not work for you, you may need to go to the Zoom website and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Please double check your email and make sure it’s a valid email address prior to completing your registration. We’ve had several kick-backs when sending the Zoom meeting instructions out to registrants, and you won’t be able to join the webinar without this information. Thanks!

Questions? Email the Programs Assistant.


FAQ’s:

I did not receive the email with the Zoom meeting instructions. Please double-check the email address you enter when registering for the online event as that is where the instructions will be sent (once registration closes). You may need to add us to your email provider’s safe sender list in the event it goes to spam. Also, please contact us by the morning of the event so that we have time to address your issue as generally you should have received the email right after registration closes.

The link doesn’t appear to be working. You may need to go to the Zoom website (https://zoom.us) and manually enter the webinar ID and password. Also, wait until just a couple of minutes before the meeting is supposed to begin to try to enter the meeting. It will not work if you try to join the meeting half an hour before it’s scheduled to begin, for instance. You can also check to make sure your computer meets the system requirements by clicking here.

Will this be recorded, and will I have the ability to view them later? We are recording our online courses and offering the recordings to registrants for a week after class night.

Is there a waiting list? We do not have waiting lists for our online events at this time.
