Birding and bird feeding is the fastest growing outdoor recreational activity in the U.S. and is popular all over the world. Learn various aspects of birding with an emphasis on identification and experience in the field. From the exciting identification of a new bird to the pleasure of seeing “old friends” returning year-round, birding is a gift. Learn about basic photography from a professional photographer and pick up tips about photographing birds. We will begin with an orientation to provide you
with some birding tools (e.g., identification, choice of binoculars, etc.) and tips on bird photography. We will make field trips to local sites representing a variety of habitats such as lakes, wetlands, woodlands and prairies.
