Workshop: Thursday, January 24, 7 to 9 p.m.
Where: National Wildlife Federation, 11100 Wildlife Center Drive, Reston, VA 20190
Field Trip: Saturday, January 26, TBD
Join Greg Butcher, ASNV board member and migratory species coordinator for U.S. Forest Service International Programs, for an introduction to waterfowl identification. Get to know many of the species that winter in the open waters of our region. You’ll learn how to tell a Bufflehead from a Hooded Merganser, and, with luck, you will see the beautiful Tundra Swans that winter in our area. Strategies will include identification by shape and color pattern. This workshop will include an outdoor field trip and bird walk on Saturday, January 26—details will be given in class. After the workshop and field trip, you’ll be ready to rally for a tally during our 11th Annual Waterfowl Count, Saturday, February 9, and Sunday, February 10.
