Spring Birding Classes

Evening bird classes taught by Joe Morlan and endorsed by Golden Gate Audubon Society will be starting February 5 and 6, 2013. All classes meet 7-9:15 p.m. in room 218 at City College of San Francisco, John Adams Campus. Free parking is in the school lot adjacent to the building at 1860 Hayes Street.

The instructor is co-author of "Birds of San Francisco and the Bay Area" and "Birds of Northern California." He is also coordinator of the recorded "Northern California Birdbox" sponsored by Golden Gate Audubon Society. Slides illustrate all lectures, and the text for all classes is "A Field Guide to Birds of North America," sixth edition, by the National Geographic Society. "The Sibley Guide to Birds" is recommended as an adjunct text for both classes. Ornithology I will not be offered this semester but will be offered in Fall 2013.

The instructor may arrange optional field trips on weekends. Please bring binoculars and field guides to class if you have them. Fees are $145 for seven week classes but there is a $15 discount for each class if you pre-register at least a week early. For further information call (415) 561-1860. You can register online, or mail or fax this registration form.
