You've started to notice more closely the familiar and intriguing birds in your backyard, on your commute, or outside your window-now you want to know more.

Learn birding basics from the experts--from different bird families to various tools and resources used by birders. Find out what makes birds unique in the animal kingdom; where and how to locate birds in urban, suburban, and rural areas; and get introduced to basic bird biology and behavior. This online class will help you get started and build your skills at locating, observing, and identifying local birds so you can join one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America, with opportunities to practice every week.

Each weekly class will include optional, self-directed outdoor observation exercises and a 30-minute follow-up discussion session a week later, providing an opportunity for you to observe birds and share your discoveries and questions with classmates and instructors.

This series is the perfect experience to get your ready for Mass Audubon's annual birding fundraiser, Bird-a-thon, on May 15 & 16, 2021. Learn more at massaudubon.org/birdathon.'

Presenters: Scott Santino, Education Manager and Teacher Naturalist at Ipswich River, Joel Wagner, Educator at Wellfleet Bay, and Doug Lowry, Adult Education Specialist and Teacher-Naturalist at North River, plus multiple guest presenters from Mass Audubon and beyond.
