Back by Popular Demand - Birding 101 with Esa Jarvi
Saturday, November 12
Pioneers Park Nature Center
If you missed Birding 101 last fall, you can stop lamenting, because Eas has offered to present another fun and informative session!
Esa's mini-course for birders includes clever and thoughtful tips for birders of all levels as well as many helpful suggestions for beginners. The Pioneers Park Nature Center bird feeding station will provide an assortment of subjects to get our bird list started, and then we'll set out on a morning exploration of the area's different habitats for fall and winter sparrows and whatever other surprises our hike offers. Grassland, woodland, and wetland species all have a chance of making an appearance on our outing.
We'll meet Saturday, November 12 at 9:00 a.m. in Lincoln at the Pioneers Park Nature Center southwest of S. Coddington and W. Van Dorn Streets, on the Nature Center building's back porch facing the pond. Bring binoculars if you have them, a limited number of extra binoculars and field guides will be available for anyone needing to use them. Wear shoes appropriate for hiking and consider the possibility of wet trail conditions if we hike near wetlands or if rain has occurred immediately prior to our field trip. There is no fee and the public is welcome. Leader will show up rain or shine. If we have good weather, we will spend up to three hours, but you are free to leave at any time. If you have questions call John at 402-475-7275.
