Explore the Joys of Birding

Bird Walk at Rogue River Preserve

We are in the midst of fall migration and it is a great time to start birding. Join board member Amanda Alford for a Beginner Birder Talk and Walk where she will introduce you to birding basics. Birding benefits your mood, psychological well-being, mental health, and cognitive functioning. Learn how to begin your birding journey or how to get back to your basics.

The Talk will include all of Amanda’s best tips for:

  • Finding birds
  • Understanding and using binoculars
  • Identifying species by size, shape, suit, scene, and sound
  • Utilizing smartphone applications and online resources
  • And more!

The Talk will conclude with an in-depth look at just some of the species we will likely see during our Walk at Bear Creek Park. Come level up your birding skills and gain the confidence you need to have even more fun watching birds!

This outreach event is free. Bear Creek Park has paved walkways and handicap parking. Binoculars are available for use during the walk.

Talk: September 29th at 6 pm. This is a hybrid presentation. The in-person will take place at the Klamath Bird Observatory office (2425 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland, OR 97520) or you can attend via Zoom.

Walk: October 1st at 9 am. The walk will take place at Bear Creek Park in Medford OR.

Proof of vaccinations is required to attend any in-person events.
