Have you ever considered trying Birding (aka "bird-watching")? Or are you an experienced birder with a long "Life List"? This delightful lifetime practice is a great way to enhance your appreciation of some of nature's most beautiful creatures, of being outdoors, and of traveling. This class will focus on techniques, tools, knowledge, and practices for bird identification and appreciation (i.e., not including ornithology or bird photography). Bill and Laura Couchman, a married couple who have been happily birding together for 15 years, will cover topics including binoculars, field guides, how to find, spot and identify birds with your eyes and ears, implications of habitat and range, organizations and communities available for birders, the impact of climate change, birding travels, backyard birding, and more. We'll show photos and video of birds to help you learn the local favorites and more, and the class will include one or two field trips (nearby during class time) so we can go birding together. The class is designed for beginners/novices, but we welcome experienced birders to join us to share their knowledge.
Instructor(s): Laura Couchman, Bill Couchman
Laura and Bill Couchman are happily married and have been birding together for 15 years. They take binoculars everywhere they go, and especially love birding in AZ because there are no leaves in the trees! Both are experienced OLLI study group leaders.
