This course is designed for anyone with a general interest in birds and is aimed at newcomers to birding and ornithology. We will cover the basics of field identification of the birds of northern Ohio, the biology of bird migration, and bird banding. The course will be primarily taught in the field to take advantage of the height of spring migration.
