Basic Bird-Watching

$49

with Stan LeQuire

Calendar May 2, 2019 at 7 pm, runs for 6 weeks

This is an introductory course designed to help you feel comfortable and proficient in one of the USA’s most popular hobbies. The course assumes that the student has only minimal or no knowledge of birds, but desires to acquire skills to identify birds by sight and sound. Students will learn how to find, identify, attract and enjoy the birds of the Midcoast area. The last class session is a walk along a local trail which will help you practice your new, bird-watching skills. Recommended for class: a basic field identification guide to the birds of eastern North America and a pair of binoculars. These items are not required, but eventually, you may want to invest in these 2 items.

Stan L. LeQuire is a life-long naturalist, guide and outdoorsman. He enjoys introducing people to the splendors of Lincoln County. He also teaches a natural history course for adult education in the fall.
