About: Watching birds can be a very peaceful and joyful experience.

Birds are integrated into our lives in many ways and work on our behalf – completely free of charge

They are living modern dinosaurs, highly adapted for flight and environment. Yet we often don’t really ‘see’ them or take any notice unless they are annoying us – and some can do that too.

This workshop will:

  • introduce birds as amazing adapted animals

  • show how they help us and tell us about our environment

  • cover the basic skills required to become a proficient ‘birder’ and

  • provide the opportunity for you to practice.

RSVP including name and contact details by: Saturday 6th October to kate.ravich@bigpond.com or text 0417487263 (Maximum 10)
