Spring Birding on the North Shore

Course Overview

Spring offers excellent birding opportunities on the North Shore: with the arrival of warblers and  other migrants, there is the potential to see an unusual number of species in a short amount of time. Join Michael Karns, avid outdoorsman and life-long birder (and font of knowledge on many topics for a day-long exploration of a variety of habitats. Michael’s approach to birding is equally appropriate for beginning or experienced birders. This class will take place primarily in the field and participants will carpool to several nearby locations. Students should be prepared for hiking distances of up to a mile over uneven ground and all the charms of the spring forest, including bugs and rain.

Participants should wear clothing & footwear appropriate for a variety of field conditions, and bring a backpack with water, snacks and a lunch. Other personal items like sunscreen, bug spray and rain jacket may be advisable.
