What’s that Bird? Join Field Naturalist Mark Read on July 28th 1pm and he'll help you answer this common question. After a 45-minute indoor introduction into the basics of bird identification (using stuffed specimens to learn from), Mark will then take you for a short walk (weather permitting) to put your new skills into action. Bring binoculars if you have them!
Mark currently holds the Education Chair with Kingston Field Naturalists and is responsible for maintaining and reporting upon bird sightings in the Kingston area. He has been birding for nearly 40 years and, originally from the UK, has travelled extensively as an educator and researcher in SE Asia, Egypt and Nepal.
