Event details

Bird identification can be overwhelming, but learning only a few birds each week makes it fun and easy! Six weekly lessons and short hikes given by master birder Sue Zelek on the key shapes, markings, habits and songs for our local birds will make spring bird-watching a snap!

The lessons will be held from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Sundays, Jan. 14 through Feb. 18. The cost includes a field guide and other birding materials.

This program is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
