Whether you are brand new to the world of birding or already have a strong base knowledge, you can quickly improve your skills of identification, expand your awareness and repertoire of bird calls, as well as deepen your connection with those eloquent feathered ones of your bioregion during this weekend workshop at the lovely Earth Star Retreat Center. You will learn the “Art of Questioning and Observation”, the key to identifying a bird by the flick of its tail, the signature swoop it makes in flight or its distinctive silhouette atop a far off tree. You will also delve into the topics of deep bird language, bird behavior, habitat, field-marks, posture, shape, tracks, size and voice. All skill levels are welcome. Cost ~ $240 Includes lodging & all organic garden to table meals
