Spring is the best time of year to hear and learn bird songs.  Males are full of hormones and bursting with song.  Many neo-tropical migrants are returning and vying for mates and territories.  It is a very exciting time of year, so even if you dislike getting up early, it might be worth your while to join one or more of these classes.  Participants will be asked to stay quiet to enable us to listen to the myriad of bird sounds.  Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring layered clothing, water, binoculars, field guides, and snacks.

There will be a $10 fee for each class, or you may enroll at the first class for all three sessions at a discounted price of $25.  We will collect payment at the beginning of each class and request payment by check or exact amount of cash. Each class will be limited to 15 participants.  To sign up for one or more of these classes, email Jeanine Starritt at .  Be sure to include the name(s) of the session(s) you wish to join and your phone number. Participants will be contacted to confirm registration, and a wait list will be created if registration exceeds available space. Please be sure to notify us if you are unable to attend as planned.
