It’s time to learn how to identify those ducks! Travis Audubon is pleased to announce that Laurie Foss and Eric Stager will once again be teaching the Waterfowl Identification Class. Laurie helped teach the Intro to Birds and Birding class for 5 years and has taught other classes for TAS. Eric has helped teach the Shorebirds class for TAS, and both Laurie and Eric have extensive experience leading field trips.
This course will focus on ducks, grebes, geese and other waterfowl found in Texas, especially during the winter months. It is well suited for birders who have completed an introductory class or for those who just need to brush up their skills.
The class will consist of two lecture/photo presentations and three field trips. The lectures will be at a south Austin location on Saturday, January 26th from 8 to 10 am, and Saturday, February 2nd from 8 to 10am. Each lecture will be followed by a field trip which will last until the mid-afternoon. Locations for field trips will be announced at class time. A third field trip will be conducted on Saturday, Feb. 9th, outside of the Austin area, beginning late morning and lasting several hours. Tuition is $55 for TAS members and $65 for nonmembers. The class will be limited to 14 participants.
