EDUCATION WORKSHOPS



In addition to the programs presented at the monthly meetings, you can also benefit from the various workshops covering a wide range of birding related topics. Want to know about the habits of owls? How to use eBird? Explore the birds of India? We have you covered.

Do-it-Yourself (DIY)"Field Trip" Workshops: Each month an area is chosen, and a leader describes the location and five target species for that area. Anyone who wishes to participate has a month to visit the area on their own, record the species they see, and report back at the Zoom event the following month. We usually meet the first Monday of every month, 7-8 pm.

   May is one of the most exciting birding months of the year, with all of the returning residents and northbound migrants in their spring finery.  But did you know that May is also the best month of the year to see most of our local reptiles and amphibians?  Join veterinarians Bill Benner and Joe Wicinski (and Hampshire Bird Club members) as they show us how to look down as well as up, for a closer look at some of these other interesting animals we see when we're out birding.
