About the Event
Beginning to Bird is designed for ages 11 and up
Description: Ijams' Beginning to Bird program helps you take or re-take your first steps into the world of bird watching. This month, we get a look at feathers from many different birds. Together we will view feathers up close, learn how to tell various feathers a part, and explore how these amazing structures came to be. We'll be watching and listening for adult birds all the while.
Materials Participants Should Bring: Good walking shoes, water, binoculars (Ijams can provide binoculars as needed), journal, something to write with, and bird field guide
