    Shorebird Workshop
    Shorebirds are a diverse group and include such birds as plovers, sandpipers, curlews, gulls, terns, and more. They are also full of contradictions; some make epic migrations while others are fairly sedentary, in some species males are less colorful than females and take on all of the responsibilities for raising their young. This workshop explores these intriguing birds, including tips on how to identify members of this challenging group. Ages 12 and up. $10 with Membership, Non-Member $15 fee. Online registration required.
