Bird Watching Classes
Field identification, life styles, and ecology of local birds
Alice’s next Birding Field Trips Class will be held on four alternate Tuesdays. The class meetings will be on 1/31, 2/14, 2/28, and 3/14.
The class will bird a different, excellent birding site on those 4 Tuesdays from 10:00 AM to 12:00PM.
As always, the field trips will concentrate on the field identification, life styles, and ecology of local birds. Alice's birding class is different because it consists of tutoring during actual birding.
Alice has been teaching Birding Field Trips for over 41 yrs. and is a member of Ohlone Audubon Society. Her classes are filled with friendly, helpful people at all levels from absolute beginner to very experienced.
They would love to have you join them!
Class fee: $120.
Class size is limited, so register early. Register by mailing a check to Alice Hoch.
