WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
BAY AREA DUCK WORKSHOP–In the field with Lisa Myers • Sat, Feb 11, 2023 • 9:00 am–1:00 pm
With both saltwater and freshwater habitats, every winter the San Francisco Bay Area becomes a magnet for many different species of ducks. Ducks are also a lot of fun to identify and are a great way for the beginning birder to learn the skill of identification. Male ducks have striking field marks which make their ID much easier than many other types of birds. We will also study the females as they are often hanging out with the males. This workshop will take place in the field. Walking will be required on flat trails as we look for waterfowl in different park locations. You’ll need optics, snacks, liquids and proper layering for cold and possibly wet weather. Rain does NOT cancel, like water off a duck’s back! Fee: $50 Call the store to sign up. 408-358-9453 (Photo: Male Common Goldeneye by Nancy Turek)
