Shorebirds migrate long distances and come through our regions in spring and fall. They can be found on lake shores, ponds and flooded fields annually. They are usually very cooperative and can be viewed at close range. But shorebird identification is a challenge for all birders because of their varied plumages, sizes, mixed flocks, and timing of migration.
The RBA Shorebird Workshop, led by Dominic Sherony, will cover all the shorebirds that can be found in the Rochester area and will focus on how to look at shorebirds. It is intended for beginner and intermediate birders who want to expand their knowledge of these amazing birds.
Includes a 3-hour workshop on August 13 followed by an instructor-led field trip to Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge (date TBD, carpooling recommended).
