Birding 101 Workshop For Beginners
« : September 26, 2009, 09:33:51 PM »
Stillman Nature Center in South Barrington is holding a birding workshop for beginners on Friday evening, 10/2, and Saturday morning, 10/3. Friday we will concentrate on the birding basics, including use of optics and field guides.  Friday we will roam Stillman's 80 acres to put these newfound skills into use. This is our second program of this type, and we hope to continue it at least twice a year.  Below is a link to the Stillman website, Programs and Events page.  Scroll down the page for more information and a registration form.  This workshop will be conducted by Mark Spreyer, Stillman's Director.  Mark is an ornithologist who headed the peregrine falcon re-introduction project in Chicago during the 1980's.  More of his biography is on the website.
