Binoculars and a bird guide are all you need to start this fascinating hobby. During this indoor/outdoor clinic, center staff will provide an overview of tools and techniques to help you learn more about the birds that live in our area in winter. Afterwards, staff will lead an outdoor foray to look and listen for common birds. Binoculars are helpful but not necessary. We have a few to loan.
