Birding for beginners

Friday 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Trip# 241: Birding for beginners
Description: Are you new to watching birds? Or are you perhaps the partner of an avid birder, willing to go along but not ready to call yourself a birder? And what's with bird books: why aren't the birds alphabetized? If some of the Chautauqua offerings seem over your head or beyond your patience, this is the program for you! We'll go over some basic binocular information, practice using this equipment, and check out some different bird guides. We will be outdoors for this workshop. As we wander, we'll look at some of the more common birds in and around Mono Lake, practice identifying them, and learn about their fascinating natural history. Mono Lake County Park and the DeChambeau Ponds are our territory, and we should see several varieties of woodpeckers, songbirds, swallows, and blackbirds. (est. driving miles: 20; hiking difficulty: easy)
