RegisterBirding Basics the Birds of Pajaro Valley 
Section 7110 Section 7111
 

This fun, fascinating class is an introduction to many of the amazing birds in our own area. Employing photos, bird sound recordings, and a combination of classroom and field sessions, you will learn the basics of birding in a supportive, stress-free environment. You will begin building your basic field skills, learning how to use your field guide, apps, and optics, and employing useful identification techniques. Weather permitting, much of the class will involve practical field practice. Please arrive for the first class with binoculars and a field guide, if you have them.
