ESILL Birding Class in 2016
Bird watching is fun, intellectually stimulating, physically challenging
or totally sedentary. It can involve a great deal of money or a nominal
investment. It can involve worldwide travel or just a walk to your porch.
You can do it alone or with a group. You can enjoy it whether you are a
beginner or it has been a lifelong endeavor. Whatever... birdwatching is
the fastest growing spectator “sport” in the world!
If you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, come meet with others to
learn or review the Basics of Birding 101 being offered by ESILL and
taught by Ann McLaurin and Diana Gardiner. The class will consist of
four Tuesday morning sessions from 9:00-11:00 in March at the
Fairhope Unitarian Fellowship. The class will cover help in identifying
birds, equipment, places to bird, bird calls, migration, and how
technology is helping us identify birds.
At the end we invite you to join a field trip with Audubon Eastern Shore
