Date(s) - December 9, 2021
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Crows, ravens, jays, and magpies, taxonomically known as the corvids, tend to evoke strong feelings in people: seems we either respect them for their cleverness or we resent them for their loud voices. Attend this class to learn more about the corvids of North America and why they deserve respect. And if you don’t yet know how to tell a crow and a raven apart, this class will set you straight!

About the instructor: Longtime birder and teacher Laura Whittemore loves to show beginners the tricks of the trade. She has taught classes for Portland Audubon and previously worked for Backyard Bird Shop. Laura holds a BA in Biology from Lewis and Clark College and has traveled in the US, Australia, South Africa, and Antarctica in search of birds.
