Take a Class with Me!

Sandy River Delta ear birding

Since 2000, I have taught birding classes in the Portland area and built a solid reputation as a knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic teacher. 

In 2020 I started teaching bird classes via Zoom, and they were a real hit! What a great way to connect with far-flung birders and help folks get to know more about the birds around us. I will continue offering Zoom classes as long as there is interest, but I am also working on returning to in-person field experiences.

Zoom class topics include Birding by Ear, Corvids, Owls, Warblers, Little Brown Birds, Woodpeckers, Birds of Prey, Waterfowl, Winter Birds of the PNW Coast, and Bird Feeding. Most classes run 90 minutes, with Birds of Prey usually running 2 hours.

Check out TreeSong Nature Awareness and Retreat Center's Zoom classes. So many topics planned for 2022, including several in-person birding field trips! Join their newsletter list for up-to-date listings!

I will be working with Portland Audubon's Education department to offer more in-person field experiences, so stay tuned for more.

Hire me to guide your own local birding excursion! I love taking people to local wild areas to learn more about what birds can be found there. I provide a spotting scope and limited pairs of binoculars. My rate is $45/hour plus my drive time to the site. Contact me at kingbird68@comcast.net for more information!
