Birds Of The Bay Area

This winter semester we will look into how birds convert from basic to alternate plumages; as well as how Fall immature develop into adult plumages. Techniques of recording field observations and journal notations will be reviewed. Bird study emphasis will include selected water birds, woodpeckers, thrushes, and sparrows.

Field trips may not only be in the East Bay, but also include the greater Bay Area (then double length sessions will have expanded time (e.g., 8:15 am – 12:15 pm or 10:15 am – 2:15 pm). Destinations and directions will be announced prior to outings.
