Beginning Bird Watching Class – Spring 2018
New to birding in Colorado? Wonder where to begin? Join Colorado’s most entertaining birdwatching couple, Hugh & Urling Kingery, as they introduce the art and science of bird identification as no one else can. Learn tips and tricks for how to identify birds by sight, sound, and habitat, as well as advice on choosing and using binoculars, field guides, and spotting scopes. Instruction takes place, not in a classroom but rather on field trips to the best birding spots in the Denver metro area. Learn to develop a practiced eye and ear. Meet new friends and change the way you spend time outdoors. Make up any field trips that you miss during future class sessions. Be forewarned: this class has hooked hundreds on the lifelong adventure of birdwatching!
Field Trips: bird-watching sites around Denver including Chatfield, Barr Lake, and Castlewood Canyon State Parks, Wheat Ridge Greenbelt, and Genesee Denver Mountain Park.
Leaders: Urling & Hugh Kingery
Registration required. $150/members, $175/non-members (includes membership). Graduates of the class may drop in at $20 a field trip.
