Winter Birding Class: Join Jill Peleuses and Evan Buckland for a class on Winter birds this November! This class will include one lecture to be held in person (with a live online option available) and two field trips to great local birding spots! During the winter, some birds face very different conditions than they do in other seasons. In this class we will discuss birds’ overwinter survival, different strategies birds employ for surviving winter, energy requirements, behavior, and which species we can expect to see locally. During field trips we will enjoy two great field trips to local birding spots to see great winter birds, and observe their behavior and adaptations.
