Birds of the Beach at Rookery Bay (Naples)

March 9 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Birds of the Beach – Southwest Florida is a critical stopover site for thousands of migrating and wintering shorebirds. This workshop will discuss the history of these birds and the annual journeys many of them make. Winter shorebirds can be difficult to identify, so practicing the skills learned in this class is a must. The class will cover the use of plumage, size and behavior to help with identification. To see the many birds discussed, the second half of class will include a trip Tigertail Beach, one of the most important winter shorebird sites in Florida.
