Are you fascinated by the random rustlings in the bushes? Do you notice and enjoy the birds in your world, but wish you knew more about these clever and busy neighbors? This is just the class for you! Participants will learn how birds behave so it will be easier to find, watch, and identify the type you are seeing. Bird identification, adaptations, and habitat will be introduced. Birds of the Oregon coast will be our focus during this 2 week class. Participants will have access to bird guides and binoculars and will learn how to use them. The final day of class will be a field trip to identify birds in the area.

During the first and second weeks this November, the Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) is once again offering "Birding Basics" presented by Laura Doyle, Caren Willoughby and Mark Elliott, members of the Audubon Society of Lincoln City (ASLC).

Do you find yourself listening to an odd chirp while walking or gardening? Are you fascinated by the random rustlings in the bushes? Do you notice and enjoy the birds in your world, but wish you knew more about these clever and busy neighbors?

When you sign up for Birding Basics, with classses scheduled for 1st and 2nd Tuesdays and Thursdays of the month (Nov 1, 3, 8, 10), you will learn how to identify birds by bodily features and sounds. Laura and Caren will also teach you how to benefit from the bird guides and binoculars which will be accessible for your use during the classes. On the last day of classes, you will have the opportunity to test your new skills out in the field with your instructors and ASLC field guide, Mark Elliott.

After the completion of your classes you may wish to hone your ID'ing skills by joining other birders who attend the monthly ASLC bird walks which are scheduled on the 2nd Saturday of each month, except for December. At year's end you might like to take part in the Christmas Bird Count which takes place around mid-December. What is the Christmas Bird Count? The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of citizen science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the US, Canada and many countries in the Western Hemisphere, go out over a 24 hour period on one calendar day to count birds. Visit our website's Calendar page to stay abreast of the forthcoming CBC schedule.
