Coastal Birding: A Weekend Field Course
Raincoast Education Society
Join bird specialist Mark Maftei for a 3-day workshop including land and boat-based field trips to learn about the general ecology and biology of birds! There will be an emphasis on species commonly found in and around Clayoquot Sound.
The course fee is $280, and includes a birding boat trip as well as lunch on Saturday and Sunday!
In this three day workshop (Friday evening until Sunday noon), participants will be introduced to the general ecology and biology of birds with an emphasis on the species commonly found in and around Clayoquot Sound. Topics covered will include basic ID skills, breeding biology, physiological adaptations, migration ecology, and conservation issues. This course is designed as a way to learn more about birds in general rather than how to ID specific species. Although participants will certainly learn how to ID common species, extensive birding experience is NOT required.
