On day 3 of Birding Basics class, Patty Sorensen shared web sites to use in finding out more about birds. There are so many sites that are helpful in answering some of those birding questions that birders ask themselves. Mark Elliott shared information about the wonderful world of Raptors. He discussed the differences of various raptors from size, wing span, shape and flight patterns. This class was one not to miss.
