2020 Birding 101

Halifax River Audubon is once again hosting its popular course on birds and birding in Central Florida. The course consists of 6 sessions. 3 live video classes will cover topics in birding in lecture and discussion. Introduction to the birds of Florida will be combined with information on the tools used in birding, reference sources, apps that help and more. Students will have the opportunity to try out what they have learned in the field on trips to local birding venues. 

Three “units” will be offered consisting of a Wednesday evening class followed by an outdoor field trip experience on another day, each to a different birding destination. The sessions are spaced every three weeks to allow for changes in the birds we might see. As winter approaches, more birds arrive in Florida and the bird watching just gets better. The units will be unique and participants are encouraged to attend all of the sessions. However, if your schedule only permits you to attend one or two weeks, please consider joining us at the one week rate. 

Another consideration - are you a "snowbird"? Are you out of town but coming to Florida? Please join us for the video classroom lectures. When you get to Florida, we can schedule make-up field trips and coaching sessions.

Classes and field trips are structured for adults who are new to bird watching or want to brush up their skills. Older children may participate if interested and accompanied by an adult. 

Classes will be held live, on-line via Zoom. If you are new to Zoom we can help you get online.

Check our 2020 meeting page at Halifaxriveras.org. Scroll to the bottom to view what you will need to participate.

Your payment reserves a Zoom slot/seat that can be enjoyed by all members of your household. It also includes access to our class section on this website that will have lots of information that we will cover in class, handouts and the slides for review.

So dig out those binoculars and sign up. Class size is limited for the best experience possible, so apply early.
