"Birds: A Light-hearted Approach to Learning about Birds, Places to Bird, and Bird Song",   presented by Shannon Rio

 There are a variety of way to learn about birds.  This class takes a playful approach using bird jeopardy questions and guessing some birds by the songs they sing.  We will go on a journey of places to birds: nearby and visiting wildlife refuges within a day's drive.  Lastly, poetry and beautiful photography will be used to look into the world of local birds and we will visit some feeders to see which birds visit.  Come prepared to have fun and definitely no birding knowledge is necessary.  Shannon Rio is the board president of the Klamath Bird Observatory and a wildlife educator.  

CHICKADEE CHATS: 

Chickadee Chats are informal get togethers to talk about birds.  Learn about a particular species...How do you identify them?  What particular habits does it have?  What is its song?  Where and what does it eat?  In what habitat can you find it?  etc.  Come to share, learn, and have fun with fellow bird nerds! Currently these chats are limited to 6 participants, masks are required unless you can show proof of covid vaccination.  You will need to register for these talks by calling the store or coming in to reserve your seat.
