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!

This course is meant to be both beginner-friendly as well as informative for more advanced birders.

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on two consecutive Tuesdays (3/1 and 3/8), from 6–7 p.m. CST. It will be a one-hour online class with some time at the end for questions.

Cost: Your one-time registration fee of $20 covers the two meetings.* (While you are not required to attend each class, do note that we cannot refund individuals for partial attendance.) We will be recording the webinar and making it available to participants for a week after the class. *We understand there are economic barriers that many are facing during this time. If you live in Alabama and would like to request financial assistance, please email us.*
