On Saturday, June 3 from 9 AM until 12 noon, Ellis Bird Farm will be holding a Beginner Bird Identification workshop, hosted by expert Judy Boyd. She will begin with a presentation on common Central Alberta birds and how to identify them by song and plumage. Participants will then be invited to walk with Judy around the EBF main site, Sandpiper Pond and the West Woods and put their new knowledge into practice! As part of the workshop, each participant will receive a copy of the Red Deer River Naturalists' publication "Birding Guide to Central Alberta." The cost of the event is $20 per person, plus GST. We guarantee you will come away having learned something new about Alberta birds!
