Veteran birders set three-part seminar for Backyard Birding series

The next in the 2019-2020 Backyard Birding series is set for 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.

Veteran birders Bob Boekelheide and Ken Wiersema will present a three-part seminar titled “Bird Nests, the Great Backyard Bird Count & eBirding.”

In this, the fifth of the series, the presenters will compare some design features of bird nests across various species. Second, they will detail how attendees can prepare for and participate in Audubon’s national Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) upcoming in mid-February. Third, they will introduce the online application eBird, a tool for recording and reporting bird sightings.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their phones, laptops and other portable electronic devices for this hands-on instruction.

Hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS), Backyard Birding can be taken either as individual classes or in a series. Cost of each session is $5; admission is free for anyone younger than 18.

For participants completing five sessions in the series, OPAS offers a one-year membership.
