Birding Afield: Mink River Natural Area Habitats

Paul Regnier

June 14 | 7 - 3:30

Bird watching is an easy, lifelong hobby with addictive qualities. Join local naturalist and birder Paul Regnier on an all-day exploration of the Mink River Natural Area habitats searching for birds - beginners and seasoned birders welcome. Learn or expand your visual and auditory identification techniques, bird watching skills and knowledge. We will start early at the Mink River (location directions to be sent prior to class). Depending on conditions, we'll be birding until late morning, lunch at The Clearing and review our morning with eBird and checklists. Then we'll return to another section of the Mink River. Information gathered will be used for the Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas. We will cover equipment, field guides, advanced techniques, and new technologies. Bring binoculars and dress for outdoors.
