THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WATERFOWL

Registration closes at 8:00 am the day of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!

INSTRUCTOR: LAURA WHITTEMORE

Waterfowl means more than mallards and Canada geese! Many species of ducks, geese, and swans are on their way south from their tundra nesting grounds, and soon our lakes and ponds will be full of easy-to-confuse species. This class will introduce you to the resident and wintering species we’ll encounter in the inland Pacific Northwest and teach you how to tell them apart by behavior, habitat, and the location of white on their bodies.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST WOODPECKERS

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM VIA ZOOM (CLASSES NOT RECORDED)

Registration closes at 4:00 pm the day of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!

INSTRUCTOR: LAURA WHITTEMORE

Woodpeckers are one of the most specialized birds in North America, and the Pacific Northwest hosts as many as 12 species, depending on habitat. They lives their lives in and on trees, rarely bothering with the ground, and function as architects of the forest through their drilling and carving talents. In this class we’ll cover how to identify them through field marks and voice plus learn about their life histories, habitat requirements, and unique partnerships with other wildlife.

LITTLE BROWN BIRDS (FALL/WINTER VERSION)

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 9:00 AM- 10:30 AM VIA ZOOM (CLASSES NOT RECORDED)

Registration closes at 8:00 am the day of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!

INSTRUCTOR: LAURA WHITTEMORE

Little brown birds can be challenging to identify, but if you know what field marks, behavior and habitat preferences to pay attention to, suddenly they don’t all look alike! Join us to learn about the resident brown birds like song sparrow and Bewick’s wren, and also get to know the fall and winter visitors like fox sparrow and hermit thrush. Brown birds won’t look the same to you after this class!
