High Park Nature Centre is holding a Birding 101 seminar from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m tonight (May 10th) and 7:00 to 9:00 a.m this Sunday (May 13th). It costs $35 for adults and $15 for Youth (ages 12 to 18) and includes a two hour workshop and a two hour guided hike.
"Learn the basics of birding from naturalist and long time birdwatcher, Zak Smith. This workshop will teach how to identify birds by sight and sound, how to use a field guide and binoculars to their maximum potential, and where to look for them in Toronto’s biggest park and beyond. Practice your new skills with a guided birding hike to the many birding hotspots in High Park and look for some of the Park’s common, rare and migratory spring birds early Sunday morning."
