One Good “Tern” Deserves Another – Workshop with Biologist Ryan Phillips

SATURDAY, AUGUST 11  •  8:00 AM – 12 noon

The Bay Area provides such a variety of habitats that creating new workshops is easy. This new workshop will focus on the family of birds known as Terns. Many different species of Terns come to the area each Summer. Because they have similar field marks they can be a challenge to identify. We will spend the morning at the bay learning the differences between the many different terns that come through. We will be on the look out for Caspian Tern and Forster’s Tern. There will also be a chance to see Least and Black Terns too. Call the store to sign-up 408-358-9453. Location to be determined closer to the event depending on reports. Participants will meet at the workshop or carpool from the store. Fee: $35 per workshop

All About Owls

WEDNESDAY, JULY 18 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

(For ages 5 – 12)

Owls are mysterious birds usually found only at night as they hunt after dark in search of rodents. Because of that we have created a wonderful class. Come to the Los Gatos Birdwatcher and learn about owls; learn how they find their food and what they eat. You will get to dissect your own owl pellet. And we invite you to come meet “Olive”, a live Western Screech Owl here at the store from the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo.
