WINTER BIRDS

  • Taught by Harry Fuller, KBO Board President.
  • Classroom session: Thursday, November 5th, 2015 6:30-8:00pm at KBO headquarters, Lincoln School.
  • Field trip: Saturday, November 7th, 2015 all day with time of departure to be announced at the talk.
  • In Jackson County some of our resident birds come down from the mountains, like Juncos, Wilsons Snipe, Hermit Thrush, Pacific Wrens and an occasional Townsend Solitaire. An influx of ducks and other birds arrive from colder climes. Some of our birds simply stay put but have to change their diet significantly. Phoebes do not find much call for fly-catching in a real winter. This class will explore our winter birds and see if we have some surprises due to climate change.
  • Space is limited to 15.

    HAWK IDENTIFICATION WORKSHOP

    • Taught by Dick Ashford, local hawk expert and KBO Board Emeritus

  • This always-popular workshop returns for another year! During the classroom session, Dick will provide a straightforward introduction to the identification of our local hawks, eagles, and falcons. The goal? To prepare you to be successful (and have fun!) on the Saturday outing. Prerequisites: Fun people only – no whiners!
  • Space is limited to 14.
  • Community Education Events Offered by KBO Board Members and Friends
