Virtual - Introduction to Birdwatching with Bill Gette *For Adults

Friday, May 19, 2023

During his PowerPoint presentation, Bill will describe why birding is so popular; review basic information every new birder should know to get started; outline a method for working through the identification process most effectively; explain why a sense of place and time is so important; and outline the many aids to bird identification, both physical and behavioral.

Since 1986, Bill Gette, Founding Director of Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport, has been introducing people to the exciting world of birds through his Introduction to Birdwatching workshops.

This richly illustrated presentation is appropriate for both beginning and intermediate birders and anyone interested in experiencing the beauty and diversity of wildlife in our area. There will be time for questions during and after the presentation.
