Field Trip - Point Whitehorn, Beginning Birding by Ear

Trip Leaders: Phil Calise and Pam Borso

Trip Limit: 15

Registration Required: Contact Pam Borso at: or 360-319-9004

Join Pam and Phil to hone your skills in identifying birds by ear as you learn how to recognize avian species by their calls and songs. This will be a fun trip for beginners as well as experienced birders who want to stay in tune with our feathered friends. We will find resident species of woodland and marine habitats as well as some newly arrived migrants.

Our field trips are free and open to anyone who is interested. Bring your friends!
