Mature Pacific Northwest forests host birds that are uniquely adapted to live in different layers of the forest. This workshop will teach you which birds to expect in our coniferous, deciduous, and mixed forests, how to detect them by sight and sound, and which adaptations help them survive and thrive.
In this class, experienced birder Laura Whittemore will introduce you to the common birds of Pacific Northwest mature forests, such as 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 Audubon Society of Portland and previously worked for Backyard Bird Shop, where she helped bird-feeding enthusiasts ID those confusing little brown birds. 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.
All lectures will be recorded and available to participants for 48hrs following the class.
