Instinctive Birding with Kristi Dranginis

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Join birder Kristi Dranginis (founder of Bird Mentor: www.BirdMentor.com) on the second Tuesday of each month (**Except February) for a golden opportunity to dive deep into the practice of Instinctive Birding.  Winter is a wonderful time to participate in this nearly lost art.  Learn to interpret the subtle signs and voices of the birds while also becoming more proficient with your bird ID skills.

We’ll begin observing the unfolding story of the landscape with a bird sit. Please bring something to sit on (camp chair, cushion, etc) and a blanket to keep you warm if you like.  Minty hot coco will be provided, so bring your mug. We’ll then transition inside where we’ll warm up and peel away the layers of the mysteries that presented themselves to us during our sit.

Our sessions will average about 2 hours, but feel free to head out whenever you need to. Open to all experience levels. Dress for the weather! Will take place snow or shine! 9:00 a.m. start time. Meet in front of the A. B. Ceder Room. Head on over to www.birdmentor.com/birdwalk to add yourself to the email list & receive updates for each month.   FREE…Donations will be accepted to help defray the Conservation Center’s programming expenses.
