AT: Sparrows Of The Upper Texas Coast

December 8, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$75

Field Trip: December 12, 2020

Sparrows are a beautiful and exciting part of our natural world! We will learn how to begin to identify this very challenging group. Many species of sparrows are small birds, secretive, colored in shades of browns and grays and affectionately referred to as “LBJ’s” (little brown jobs). I like to say that warblers are the acrylic paintings of the bird world and sparrows are the watercolors of the birds. But it is their subtlety of appearance that makes them fun and challenging to identify. This class will focus on how to look at, and what to look for to identify a sparrow. Learning to see and understand the structural differences, color pattern differences, and behavior will be covered. This class is not recommended for beginners but is not closed to beginners. At least one previous class is recommended.
