Bird Identification Workshops at the Los Gatos Birdwatcher with Lisa Myers – Open to all levels

These workshops have proven extremely popular as customers learn how to identify the birds coming to their yards and into the Bay Area. Workshops take place at the Los Gatos Birdwatcher, 7:00PM – 8:00PM. Free

The one hour workshops will focus on four different bird species we can expect to see in our local area. We'll go over the field marks you can use to make the ID. We'll also talk about behaviors, food preferences and even vocalizations.
