Offered every other week in April and May.
Description: Calling all budding ornithologists! Witness the amazing spring song bird migration along the Mississippi Flyway! Join other birding enthusiasts searching for winter residents, summer nesters, and those birds that just pass through on their way farther north to their breeding grounds. Look for warblers, grosbeaks, shorebirds, gulls, raptors, and more each week.
No prior birding experience is needed! Binoculars are provided in limited supply; if a student does have access to binoculars, please bring them. Students will learn proper use of binoculars, using field guides, and learning how to identify birds by silhouette, flight, location and song.
Target grade level: This program is great for students in 4th–8th grade.
Cost per child/student: $10
Registration: Register online via the link at tceec.weebly.com/programs.html
Students need not sign up for all sessions but are encouraged to sign up for as many as possible as each session will see different birds as they begin their migration through our area. Plus the more sessions attended, the better their identification skills will be!
