In response to physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering some free online courses and events as a public service to help folks continue to learn about the birds they love! Please support our work if you are able and make a tax-deductible donation at alaudubon.org/give. Even though the state has reopened, it’s important to stay safe during this pandemic. See our full COVID-19 statement here.
Here’s another opportunity to join master-birder Greg Harber as he teaches students everything they need to know to get started with their new favorite hobby, including: feeding birds in your backyard, finding birds in Birmingham and throughout Alabama, and identifying common birds and bird families.
Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Monday, August 24th, from 6–7 p.m. CDT. It will be an hour-long online class with some time at the end for questions. Click on the registration link above to sign up, and you’ll receive the instructions on how to join the meeting via a confirmation email.*
*Please note, you will receive a separate email with the Zoom meeting instructions before the class (likely the morning of once registration closes). You’ll need the meeting 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 meeting ID and password.
Registration: To register, click on the button above. If you’re new to our online system and don’t yet have a username and password, simply click the “X” on the pop up and fill out the basic form.
Please only register if you intend to take the online course. We’ve had a lot of people reach out after these courses fill up who want to take them, and we want to ensure everyone has a spot that wants one! Also, 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 meeting without this information. Thanks!
Questions? Email the Outreach & Communications Director.
Will this be recorded, and will I have the ability to view them later? Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to record our online courses. Please check out our other upcoming online courses here.
Is there a waiting list? We do not have waiting lists for our online courses at this time.
The link doesn’t appear to be working. You may need to go to the Zoom website (https://zoom.us) and manually enter the meeting 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.
I did not receive the email with the Zoom meeting instructions. Please double-check the email address you enter when registering for the course as that is where the instructions will be sent (after 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 if possible as generally you should have received the email by then so that we have time to address your issue before the close of the business day. The Zoom instructions are sent out after registration closes.
