Discover the wonderful world of shorebirds and how to identify them in this class taught by Master Birder, Tim Boyer. With 2 evening sessions and an optional daylong field trip to the Washington Coast,  the class will cover in-depth the 35 most likely shorebirds to be seen during spring migration.  Learn not only how to identify shorebirds (including those difficult little brown peeps), but also learn about how and why shorebirds migrate. 

  

Tim is a popular instructor returning again to Eastside Audubon. He is an award winning nature photographer who also enjoys teaching and leading field trips for Audubon chapters.

 

Classroom sessions are from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on April 11 and 13. The trip on Saturday will most likely be to Ocean Shores with a meeting time and place to be determined later. Participants selecting the field trip option should be prepared for an early leave time with a full day on the coast in Northwest spring time weather.

 

Classrooms are at our office located at the address below on the corner of Fourth Ave South and State St. Be sure to come to the door on the lower level next to the church’s playground on State Street.
