Start off a new year of birding with confidence! Join Georgann Schmalz for a 2-hour workshop on improving your birding skills. This class is a must for any new birder who feels somewhat overwhelmed by the birding skills of other more advanced birders.
Becoming a Better Birder covers aspects of birding that a novice birder usually needs to learn by experience in the field and often does not. Time will be spent learning good techniques of birding in the field and choosing good optics, books and sound devices. Not only will participants develop key identification skills under Georgann’s expert guidance, they will also experience the satisfaction that better birding can yield.
Georgann holds a master’s degree in ornithology, taught at Fernbank Science Center for 29 years, and is three-time past president of AAS. She is a wealth of information and entertainment!
This workshop will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 2:00-4:00 PM at the Atlanta Audubon Society office located at 4055 Roswell Road in Atlanta. The cost is $40 AAS members and $45 for non-members.
