Birding for People Who are Bad at Birding

May 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Are you mesmerized by all 51 of Alaska’s native Sparrows and Warblers? Do you dream in birdsong? Can you spot the difference between a Black-Capped Chickadee and a Boreal Chickadee at 100yds? Then this is NOT the right hike for you. Join burgeoning birder and ERNC Naturalist, Samantha Blumenkönig for a simple, basic introduction to birdwatching. This is an ideal, unintimidating, starting point for anyone who wants to get on-the-ground field experience bird watching but doesn’t know how to get started. Loaner binoculars available. Limited to 10 people registered at www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/MTE0MzA2  If registration is full, email naturalist@ernc.org to be placed on the waiting list. Samantha will email you details such as where to meet and what to pack by Friday, May 7th. This event may be cancelled due to poor weather and is repeated on May 22. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an actively engaged adult. No dogs or other pets please. This event will be IN PERSON. Please be prepared to follow all Anchorage Municipality COVID-19 protocols in addition to ERNC policies. Free program. $5 parking for non-members.
