BACKYARD BIRDER CLASS
“Gulls and Shorebirds”
July 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
The tenth (and final) Backyard Birding program in the 2018-2019 series will be “Gulls and Shorebirds” presented by Bob Boekelheide. The program will be offered Saturday, July 6, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Dungeness River Audubon Center, Railroad Bridge Park, Sequim.
Bob will explain his frequently repeated mantra: “There is no species named Seagull”. Come learn how to identify the more than a dozen species of gulls, gull-like birds, and the multitude of their shorebird associates who call the Olympic Peninsula home, visit us in their migration, or breed here. The program is richly illustrated with regional photographs, and we welcome your questions and comments. Bob will lead a short field trip after the class to a local shoreline.
“Backyard Birding” can be taken either as individual classes or as a series. The cost of each session is $5. Admission is free for anyone under 18. For participants attending five sessions within the annual series, Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS) offers a one-year membership at no additional cost.
The annual Backyard Birding series of programs, sponsored by members of OPAS, offers interested local residents and visitors information about identifying, observing, and protecting wild bird life in our region. Instructors are volunteers, and class fees support the educational programs of OPAS and the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
