Mature Pacific Northwest forests host birds that are uniquely adapted to live in the forest’s different layers. This workshop will teach you which birds to expect in our coniferous, deciduous, and mixed forests, and which adaptations help them survive and thrive. You will be introduced to kinglets, creepers, nuthatches, woodpeckers, and owls. Learn how to find and recognize these sometimes elusive species using location, behavior, plumage, and sound.
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.
