Do you know what a bird is? Well, that is all you need to know for this birdwatching group! Come and learn the basics of birdwatching and how to begin identifying them by sound, colour, shape, and size. This program is open to all experience levels, beginners, intermediates, and experts. We will be pointing out and identifying all birds we see along the way.
