Are you interested in learning more about birds and how to identify them? Do you enjoy exploring Washington, DC’s wonderful habitats but aren’t sure what you’re seeing flying through them?

DC Audubon is pleased to announce our fourth offering of “Introduction to Birdwatching,” a course designed to introduce you to the joys of birdwatching in the nation’s capital. This two-part course will focus on all the topics that are important to beginning birders: equipment, field guides, birding ethics, identification, taxonomy, and the best birding sites in the city. The course includes a classroom session that covers the basics of birding in DC and a field trip that will help you put what you learn into practice. The course will be taught by members of the DC Audubon Society.

No previous birding experience is necessary. We welcome participants of all ages, but please note that the class is geared for adults. Because of the limited number of spots available, please only register if you can attend BOTH sessions.

The course is free, but we encourage you to consider supporting DC Audubon with a voluntary donation.
