Beginners’ Bird Watching Class

Orange Audubon Society’s (OAS) Bob Sanders will teach a Beginners’ Bird Watching Class (BBWC) this spring.

The class is intended to teach or enhance skills in identifying bird species using sight, sound, behavior and other clues.

The course includes a classroom session March 8th at Orlando Wetlands followed by a mini-field trip, and 2 field sessions on March 15th and 22nd.

All sessions are 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Field session locales will be announced at the first class.

Goals of the course are to increase knowledge and awareness of North American bird species; teach basic birding principles and bird ID techniques—including bird habitat and anatomy; provide binocular basics (OAS has ‘loaner’ binoculars for use during the class), and tips on using field guides and checklists; and discuss birding ethics.

If you miss a session, you may take a make-up session during the fall 2015 class at no charge. No participant substitutions please.

Registration is required and class is limited to 20 students.

Total cost for all three sessions is $30 for Audubon members, $45 for non-members and $10 for children through age 12 with a registered adult.

Non-members can join when registering and pay $50, which includes BBWC registration (member price $30) plus introductory 3-way annual membership in Orange, National and Florida Audubon Societies ($20 promotional rate). Such new memberships must be paid directly to OAS as described to you when you reserve your space by contacting Teresa: [masked] or (407) 644-0796.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
