Spring Birding for Beginners (Part 1)
In this two-part workshop, learn the basics of birding from naturalist and long-time birdwatcher, Zak Smith. This workshop will teach you how to identify birds by sight and sound, how to use a field guide and binoculars to their maximum potential, and where to look for birds in Toronto's biggest park and beyond. Practice your new skills with a guided birding hike to a few of the birding hotspots in High Park and look for some of the Park's common, rare, and migratory Spring birds. The hike is moderate in difficulty.
