Calling all new birders, bird-curious folks, or seasoned birders looking to refresh! Miles and Teresa Tuffli are back with us again to teach how to break into the world of birdwatching. Start your new year with tips on how to grow your birdwatching abilities, and keep learning.
Discover the best places and times to look for birds and how to locate them. Learn the art of HOW to look at a bird, including the most important things to notice when you see one you don’t recognize. They’ll give you tips on using binoculars, getting the most out of your field guide, and even how to start birding by ear! They’ll touch upon bird behavior and discuss the importance of understanding the shared characteristics within some common bird families. To wrap up, they’ll analyze photographs of some common birds in Sonoma County to demonstrate how to look at a bird you’re hoping to identify.
