Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CDT Friday, September 10th, and space is limited. Visit https://alaudubon.org/event/2021-09-13/ for more information and to register.

This introductory course, taught by master-birder Greg Harber, provides novice birders with everything they need to know to get started with their new favorite hobby—including selecting optics, choosing field guides, feeding birds in your backyard, finding birds in Birmingham and throughout Alabama, and identifying common birds and bird families.

Each class covers a different aspect of birding for the beginner:

  • Day 1: Selecting and using field guides and optics. Attracting birds to your yard, bird-feeding basics, and how to find birds in Birmingham and beyond.
  • Day 2: Learning to identify waterfowl, gulls, hawks, and owls
  • Day 3: Learning to identify wading birds, shorebirds, doves, and woodpeckers
  • Day 4: Learning to identify flycatchers and warblers
  • Day 5: Learning to identify flycatchers and warblers (part 2)
  • Day 6: Learning to identify sparrows, blackbirds, and finches

Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on six consecutive Mondays (9/13, 9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, and 10/18), from 6–8 p.m. CDT. It will be a two-hour online class with some time at the end for questions.

Cost: Your one-time registration fee of $60 covers the six meetings.* (While you are not required to attend each class, do note that we cannot refund individuals for partial attendance.) We will be recording the webinar and making it available to participants for a week after the class. *We understand there are economic barriers that many are facing during this time.
