Spring is just around the corner, and that means bird migration will soon be under way. Join Drew Haffenden for this two-week course designed to bring you either up to speed, or to refresh your dusty memory from a year ago, in identifying migrating shorebirds. Many of us are used to seeing breeding-plumaged birds for only a few weeks each year, but shorebird migration is a protracted event, starting in late February/early March and continuing until early June. We will be focusing on features that separate different species rather than the overall features of each species, and include both full and partial breeding plumage, as for most species we see both during migration. Join us and be prepared for that trip to the coast—or other shorebird area—this Spring!

Pre-registration is required by 5 p.m. CST Friday, March 12th, and space is limited. Visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-03-15/ for more information and to register.
