RSVP to join us for our annual birding workshop - our most popular event so register early. During an easy to moderate walk in Black Rock Forest, participants will learn or hone skills in bird identification by sight and ear and will learn about habitats of different species. 
 
Last year's workshop identified 30 species including some favorite year round residents as well as the spectacular Neotropical migrants. Those with smart-phones are encouraged to download Cornell University's free birding app, Merlin, though the app is not necessary for the event.
