Better Birding Monday in Montpelier
My year-long Better Birding lecture series concludes Monday evening, December 3, in Montpelier, with “Dastardly Duos” – learning to solve some of birdwatching’s classic identification challenges. Common Goldeneye or Barrow’s Goldeneye? Snow Goose or Ross’s Goose? Female Blue-winged Teal or female Green-winged Teal? Sharp-shinned Hawk or Cooper’s Hawk? Common Redpoll or Hoary Redpoll. You’ll learn a dozen or so dastardly duos and how to sort them out before you encounter them in the field.
But this is more than a workshop on ducks, sparrows, hawks, and other challenges. It’s about technique and exploring new ways to discover, identify, and enjoy birds.
The presentations begins at 6:30 pm at the First Baptist Church of Montpelier at the corner of School and St. Paul streets. The fee is $10. No need to sign up in advance.
