See what people are saying about the workshops
We just came home and spent some time looking at the birds at the feeders and it is so nice to quickly ID the birds with confidence. All the stuff we learned immediately works - It’s really great - We are really pleased.

It was all so well organized and so professionally done. I will definitely tell my other birding friends that if they want an immediate injection of bird knowledge, then take this workshop!
