September 2016 (Colorless) Bird ID

Sunday, September 18 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Naturalist Rachael Siebens is not able to detect the color of birds, and that has taught her to rely on the many other ways of identifying them – from flight, height, and sight, to food, mood, and brood!

This heighted awareness of other means of bird identification is useful even for those with fully functioning sight to help give cues when color alone isn’t enough.

This class is perfect for ages 6 and up. Participants will walk the Gardens with Rachael, learning different identification techniques. Please bring a pair of binoculars—you’ll receive hands-on tips for using them. You may also bring a camera.

Preregistration with prepayment required by Wednesday, September 14. Cost is $16 for members and $20 for the general public.
