Avian Treasure Hunt:

  Fall Migration

Birding Class, Golden Gate Audubon Society  

Meeting Location

Prepare for the migrant treasure hunt and sharpen your birding skills by better understanding local bird distribution patterns in time and space. Through this 4-week class we’ll review how seasonal changes in various Bay Area habitats influence the birds you’ll expect to find in the field, particularly migrants and vagrants. You’ll get practical birding tips on what to look for throughout the seasons when “hunting” for migratory birds in the Fall.

 

At the end of this course you’ll be better prepared to find local migrant and vagrant birds with confidence. Moreover, the principles you’ll learn regarding bird distribution in relation to seasonal changes and habitats apply to any place you may explore around the world.
