Spring Birding for Beginners (Part 1)
Learn the basics of birding from naturalist, experienced educator, and long-time birder, 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.
Please note: This is a 2-part workshop and the cost includes your registration for both parts. Here is what you can expect:
Wednesday, May 13th (6:30 pm - 8:30 pm)
This portion of the workshop will take place inside the Nature Centre. You will participate in an informative, hands-on workshop that will help you orient yourself to some of the birds found in High Park.
Saturday, May 16th (8:00 am - 10:00 am)
This portion of the workshop will take place outdoors. You will leave from the Nature Centre to engage in a group birding hike, learning to put some of the skills and knowledge from the earlier portion of the workshop to use!
