Calling all birders who wish to take their bird knowledge and identification skills to the next level! Join Vancouver Avian Research Centre for a weekend workshop exploring bird groups, topography, field marks, song, habitat, molt, ageing, and more, including a guided field session to the Colony Farm banding station. Although developed for beginner and intermediate birders, the ornithological aspects of the course and ongoing field trips will benefit even the most experienced birders and the workshop is invaluable for birders traveling overseas. This comprehensive course is structured over 2 days and consists of nine classroom sessions and one field trip. The classroom sessions cover many aspects of avian evolution, adaptation, morphology, taxonomy, identification, migration, and behaviour making it ideal for beginner and expert alike.

Please note: This workshop is being run in association with UBC Botanical Garden, however, classroom sessions will take place at BCIT and the field session at the VARC Colony Farm banding station.
