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 offering in-person field trips for TreeSong, Portland Audubon, Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District, and Hoyt Arboretum.

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. We are also leading in-person birding by ear field trips locally!

I'll be leading two birding by ear sessions at Tualatin Hills Nature Park and Cooper Mountain. See page 12 of this catalog, and then register hereat Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District's website.

At Portland Audubon, I'll be teaching two-session birding by ear classes. Go here and look under Field Classes for my Birding by Ear series. Check under Waitlisted In-Person Classes to add yourself if they're already full.

Check here for Hoyt Arboretum classes, both online and in person.

It's going to be a busy and birdy spring and I hope to see you in the field or online!!

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!
