Birding 101 is a month-long workshop tailored for beginning birders. Taught by local birding experts Wil Hershberger and Carol Winckler, the course combines classroom sessions and field trips to teach everything from bird ID to field etiquette to birding techniques.
In 2022, PVAS celebrated the 35th anniversary of Birding 101! We are excited to continue offering this workshop for years to come.
Classroom sessions are held on four consecutive Thursday evenings (7-9 pm) beginning in April. An impressive collection of images and recordings, many captured by the instructors, enhance these sessions. To reinforce in-class learning, field trips are held at various locations around the Panhandle from roughly 7am-12pm on corresponding Saturdays. All field trips are held outdoors, and focus on exploring a variety of habitats to observe the bird species found in each.
Registration is required, class size is limited to 20 participants. The course is open to adults and children 15 years and older.
Birding 101 has finished for 2023. Check back in early 2024 for information about the next session.
