If you’re up and out at dawn, you know there’s a lot going on outside. If you’re curious not only about who is making the racket but also why, then this class is for you. David Drummond, wildlife biologist/naturalist will teach this two-session, in-depth class about Passiformes or perching birds. He will cover field ID, habitats, range, breeding and behaviors of 6 Northwest families of 27 species. Part I was offered last year with focus on other species. This year, in two sessions, we will learn about swifts, swallows, martins, thrushes, warblers, tanagers and grosbeaks. You will have a week between sessions for personal study and field observations at home and can bring your questions and/or photos to class. So, dust-off your binoculars and field guides and learn more about our feathered neighbor friends! Register here for Session A, Saturday May 6, 1:00-2:30pm. Session B will be May 13. Registration is required. You may attend one or both sessions but if planning to attend both, please register seperately for both sessions.
