LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS: DEMYSTIFYING FEMALE BIRDS

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2021, 6:00PM – 7:30 PM PACIFIC TIME
VIA ZOOM (class will be recorded and available for one week)

Registration closes at 5:00pm the evening of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!

INSTRUCTOR:
LAURA WHITTEMORE

In many bird species, the sexes look pretty much the same to us: think sparrows, wrens, crows, jays, herons, gulls, most hawks, and more. And in the species that do look different, females often sport plain plumage designed to keep them camouflaged on the nest. Thus our eye is drawn to the flashy male and we write off the female as “hard to ID” or “confusing,” or we think “just look for the male to figure out who she is.”

Join this class to study female birds on their own terms, not in comparison to male representatives of the species. We’ll take a look at several western North American species of finch, grosbeak, woodpecker, hummingbird, duck, hawk, and maybe a few surprises.

TUITION: $5 – $20 SLIDING SCALE

The link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to attendees before the workshop time.
