Birdwatching isn’t a new hobby, but it is one that is gaining in popularity. In the late 1800’s birds were of little interest to most people. In the early 1900’s things began to change, as bird clubs began forming. Bird watching also known as birding is popular because it is not hard to get started. All you need are a pair of binoculars and a field guide or an online app that will help you identify birds in your region. You can begin your birding adventure in your backyard and then branch out as your confidence grows.
The Alabama Cooperative Extension System is here to help build your confidence! Whether you have been birding for years or are just beginning, Identifying Birds by Sight and Sound is a FREE workshop you won’t want to miss. So, join us as Carrie Threadgill, Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries nongame program coordinator, teaches us how to identify birds by sight and sound. This hybrid event will be offered in-person at the Autauga County Extension office and by zoom. To register for the in-person event please follow this link:
