Birding by Ear Boot Camp

  • Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship 11661 Harpers Ferry Road Purcellville, VA, 20132 United States (map)

Join Joette Borzik for a one-day Birding by Ear Boot Camp! 

We will spend a full day learning bird song in the field on the trails of the Blue Ridge Environmental Center and surrounding area.  Some basic birding knowledge is a prerequisite i.e. being able to identify some of the local common birds by sight. 

 Birding knowledge need not be extensive, but enthusiasm and interest in learning more is expected.  Backyard and casual birders who want to step up to the next level of birding are encouraged to attend. 

Dress appropriate for the weather conditions, including a change of footwear should you get wet.  Bring sunscreen, insect repellent and drinking water for trail hiking and rainwear and an umbrella for any possible rain showers.  Bring a picnic lunch for eating under a pavilion.

Limit: 12. Course is currently full. Click button below to get on waitlist.
