In this single morning workshop for beginners, learn how to find birds, discuss equipment, what to wear, keeping track of your observations, and more. We’ll stroll around the Arboretum to observe birds that inhabit Illinois all year and learn key bird features for identification and how to match birds to their preferred food or habitat as you walk.
