Introduction To Birding

  • China Camp State Park 100 China Camp Village Road San Rafael, CA, 94901 United States (map)

Beginning to Advanced Students Welcome! If you’ve always loved birds but need help getting started,  join our beginning bird class with naturalist Jerry Coe! In our class you will receive instruction on how to effectively use binoculars and bird identification guides to identify common birds in the field. We will explore  birds of the oak woodland habitat:  raptors, gulls, woodpeckers, warblers, wrens and waders. 

Jerry Coe is a naturalist with over eight years of intensive training in ornithological field identification. He spent 15 years as a volunteer in Great Basin, Nevada doing Point Count Surveys using bird activities to assess the health of habitats and has led guided expeditions all over the world.
