We will review how to identify selected bird groups, especially those we expect to see on field trips. During classroom time, we will review and discuss field trip findings, as well as significant bird happenings both local and worldwide. Slides and workshops will be a regular part of sessions with opportunities for students to share their photos and ideas. Field trip destinations and directions will be announced prior to outings.

This winter’s session will be focused on themes such as molt sequences in orders of birds, mechanisms and characteristics of feathers, including refraction and iridescence, and special functions. In anticipation of spring, we will examine causes and complications of bird migration.
