AT: Shorebirds Of Texas

August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Field Trip: August 22, 2020

The Upper Texas Coast – one of the best places in the nation for observing shorebirds – is a beautiful and complex habitat of salt marsh, coastal marsh, uplands and beach. Only a short drive from Houston, this critically important habitat provides resting, feeding and breeding sites for hundreds of thousands of birds each year. Included in this habitat is Bolivar Flats, recognized as an important resting and feeding site for migrating shorebirds throughout the Western Hemisphere. In this course, participants will learn the “how, what, when, and where to look to identify families and individual species of shorebirds. On the field trip we will observe shorebirds in their natural habitat and practice the concepts, tips, and techniques learned in class to identify them. Class is open to everyone but beginners may find this class more meaningful if they have taken Beginning Birdwatching and Fundamentals of Birdwatching, although not required.

Zoom Class: Tuesday, August 18, 2020 (7:00-8:45 PM)
Class Fee: $75.00
Field Trip: Included subject to class advisory. Saturday, August 22, 2020. 8 AM – 4 PM.
