WINGS Birding Workshops
Most WINGS Birding Workshops focus on the identification of complex groups of birds. Each involves a mix of classroom and field sessions, and in each the pace is slow and reflective. Workshop instructors are highly skilled in the art and science of their subject matter, and they are also fine teachers.
The study of bird identification is richly rewarding, for great skill in the field often requires an understanding of many of field ornithology’s most interesting facets, including plumages and molts, distribution and abundance, and ecology and behavior. We’ll explore these topics and others while illuminating the essential distinctness of each species we study.
Digiscoping is becoming one of the more popular and satisfying birding activities. Serious birders are using the technique to document rarities, but many others are finding that their birding has been revitalized and that they now have an entirely new reason to go into the field.
Our workshop locations can support us in comfort and have large numbers and a great variety of birds in our target group.
Detailed information on each workshop is available from the WINGS office.
