Each year, millions of migratory songbirds fly hundreds of miles as they move between breeding grounds in North America and wintering sites in Central and South America. The northwest Florida coast is a great place to watch this miracle of color and diversity unfold, and this workshop will help you learn how to identify the migratory birds now moving through the area and also explore some of the intriguing biology that underpins these biannual movements. The workshop begins with a presentation on migration and how to identify birds and then moves into the field to see what colorful migrants can be found at local parks.
Participants must provide their own binoculars. It will also be helpful to bring along a bird field guide if you have one. Be sure to bring water in a refillable container, any snacks you might need, comfortable shoes for moderate walking, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
