The Carson Valley is home to hundreds of native and migrant birds. Have a desire to learn how to identify some of them? Need help to improve your bird-watching techniques? Join local birder and wildlife writer, Linda Hiller, for an informative class on bird identification at Western Nevada Community College Douglas.
"May is a great month to see a lot of birds in the Carson Valley," she said. "We'll spend a couple of hours in the classroom and then have a morning field trip on the weekend, so students can see where many of the birds are around here."
Intermediate Bird Watching (CMSV 102C, call #11267, Sec. D01) will focus on raptors, waterbirds, songbirds, and student requests. Classroom instruction will be on Thursday, May 11, from 7-9 p.m. at the WNCC Douglas science lab. The morning field trip will be the following weekend.
"This class is for any level of birder," Hiller said. "The important thing is to get out into the field, which is where the learning really takes place."
For more information or for answers to bird questions, contact Hiller at 775-267-3580 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Register at www.wnc.edu. Cost is $35.
