New to birding? Wonder how to begin? Let Audubon Master Birders help you learn about bird identification, behavior, and habitats as well as choices for binoculars, scopes, and field guides. This class will be a combination of evening virtual classes and two field trips: one to the Audubon Center at Chatfield and the other to South Platte Park (we will split the class for each field trip). The virtual classes – via Zoom – lends itself to "virtual" birding and discussion about local and regional birding sites, how to look for birds, and the keys for identification. The class is designed to provide you with knowledge you can use to kick-start your lifelong love of birding! Once you get hooked, you will embark on a hobby that leads to many adventures. Check out this recent article in 5280 Magazine.
