Event Description:
SPRING BIRDING by Tom Striker, 6 Sessions, Monday, April 2 - May 14, NO CLASS on April 23, 9:10 am – 11:10 am
 
This course will explore bird watching as a hobby to be enjoyed at any age and location.  After an introduction to biology and behavior, the course will focus on the birds of north Georgia – identification, habitat and songs.  Related topics will include field guides and binoculars.  Weather permitting, most classes will be field trips on and around the YHC campus.  One or more field trips will be scheduled off campus starting before 9 am and extending beyond 11 am.  Transportation is the responsibility of the participants. Participants will need a decent pair of binoculars and a fairly recent field guide.  Beginners are welcome! 
 
Tom Striker has been a birder for over 40 years and, until recently, operated a backyard nature store in Blue Ridge with year-round educational activities such as seminars and bird walks.  He has taught ICL birding classes since 2009 and teaches annually at the John C. Campbell Folk School.  His first career as a professional forester included 15 years with the Forest Service.  He is a member of the American Birding Association, Atlanta Audubon Society, Georgia Ornithological Society, and Fannin County Wing Watchers.
