Birding 201: Sparrows!
July 23, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
You may only know them as LBB’s (little brown birds) but soon you will be on your way to confidently identifying sparrows! During this webinar we will demystify the Sparrow family by learning what physical and behavioral characteristics to look for, as well as where to find them. Did you know that grassland birds are the fastest declining bird group? We will discuss why this is and what we can do to help our feathered friends.
Please have your favorite birding field guide or bird id app handy to help you identify these species during our learning celebrations.
Registration is required. Follow this link to register! Afterwards, you will recieve an email with the Zoom link for the webinar.
