Beginners Birding Walk:BYOB (Bring Your Own Binoculars!)

Bohemia Ecological preserve, Occidental

Sunday, February 10th, 8:30am-12:30pm

 

 

Join us for a morning of beginner's birding at Bohemia Ecological Preserve. Please note: This is not a hike, but a slow walk. We will walk the property slowly, looking for and observing all the birds we encounter. However, for those with mobility issues, please be aware that we will be walking up a steep gravel road. This is a birding walk geared toward beginners, but all skill levels are welcome. We will share tips on using binoculars, teach techniques for locating birds, point out bird vocalizations, and share bird ID field marks for some of the common winter and year-round species. We want to inspire participants to get out and appreciate the bird world!
